I have been noticing a lot of poetry on the site recently, and I thought it would be nice to have a friendly little poetry competition. There will be a weekly theme, and the entries will be judged by one of the moderators or administrators. This week's theme will be "Water." The deadline is Saturday, August 2nd. The winner will be awarded 25 Armor Points.

Can I enter?


Darkness and Love
--
my world is torn by darkness and love,
when will I see the dove?
My life, faith doth mock,
They throw me around like a tattered smock,
cupid why hast thou pierced me with thy arrow and bow?
Thou hast staggered me to and fro,
But love is burned by searing hate,
again, mock me, doth mine fate,
my world is torn by darkness and love,
when will I see the dove?

I LIKE PIRATES THEY ARE COOL
L IKE A GOD, THEY DON'T GO TO SCHOOL
I THINK THEY ROCK SO HARDCORE
K ICKING ASS IF YOUR RICH OR POOR
E VEN IF YOU OFFER THEM CASH
P UNT YOU IN THE FACE AND THEN A SLASH
I N THE OCEAN YOUR HEAD WILL GO
R OCKING H-CORE IS THE WAY THEY FLOW
A LONG THE WATER THEY SAIL ALL DAY
T HE ONLY THING THAT STOPS THEM IS A SEXY LADEY
E VEN IF THIS ISN'T 100% RELATED TO WATER
S EXY PIRATES ROCK AND CAPS LOCK ROCKS.. ER!

Water

The water flows like the wind,
softly changing the earth.
It creates valleys and shortens mountains,
and is with us from our birth.

Water flows along with our dreams,
shaping our minds.
Ever following our every move,
It is the life-sources for all kinds.

Without it we would not exist,
our lives would just be dry.
Plants and trees would wither and die,
And we wouldn't be able to cry.

And so I end this watery poem,
With a note of thanks.
For every drop that has passed my lips,
Or filled the rivers banks.

Darn I can't find any water poems in my stash of useless junk.

I'll come back with a....

Question: Is it possible when can submit more than one? Like a few limericks maybe combined as one poem?

Water is a double edged sword,
So let me give this warning word.
In small amounts it will give life,
But it is as deadly as a knife.

So do not swim in oceans deep,
The price to pay is far too steep.
An assassin in disguise,
Deep water leads surely to demise.


Holy Crap ubertuna, that's problably the best poetry I've heard in a long while. (That may show how much I look into poetry... not often XD)

@plokkey
you may only submit one final poem, but that poem can be structured however you'd like it to be, unless we have a week where people can only submit certain kinds of poems.

Ahh, how can you limit an artists mind to one topic.
It makes an artist...to not an artist.

I guess its needed so judging is easier though...
