A nonet has nine lines. The first line has nine syllables, the second line eight syllables, the third line
seven syllables, etc... until line nine that finishes withone syllable. Rhyming is optional.


Here are the rules:
1)Your poems must be original. (No plagarizing)!
2)Your poem must be made specially for this thread. (No taking your old work!)
3)Your poem must fit the weeks theme.
4)Your poem must be submitted by the deadline.
5)You may only submit one poem.
6)Sorry you can't win two weeks in a row. (but you can still submit!)

If this thread gets popular, then maybe the winner could get a merit.
The deadline will usually be on friday, which in tis case is April 6th

This weeks winner, will have the opportunity to be a judge. If they do not want to, then I will ask second place, and ect.

Start posting your poetry!

You'll have to ask a mod for that. It doesn't happen automatically.

your mom doesn't happen automatically.

and don't you think you should give us a little more time for the first round. 5 days isn't that much time for this to get rolling.

Hm... A new style for me to experiment with!
I'll post my poem when I get it perfected... I have my thoughts lined up, just have to make them fit the style.

Well....okay.

How about 5 days after the first entry? Just in case nobody submits anything for another day or so.

I plan to submit one at some point, but not now, because I'm not feeling poetic at the moment.

I'm only doing this because I'm in the mood to write stuffs.

The spell has me in its horrid grasp
I fight against the straining rope
That ties to all I regret
That ties to my mistakes
I can't forget
It consumes me
Addiction.
Destroys.
All.

I better get to work soon. Perhaps in a few days time.

Tacky, your poem is not quite right. Your 5th line should have 5 syllables, but has 4 right now. Maybe just change can't to cannot.

Sigh, not my best work, but I think it is great nonetheless:

Regret
Addiction is an accursed thing.
Has its fatal grasp on my soul;
So tempted to end myself.
Past deeds have proven wrong,
I despise my self.
Struggle I must
To escape,
Or else
Die.

*Note that accursed has 3 syllables.

If the deadline is extended I could do something for this theme, but if not, then I'll enter next time. First I have to do something for the Tanka contest. (procrastination FTW) then I'll see what I can do for this.
