A voice from the shadows fills the air
It freights the heart and puts rational mind to despair
Her words come blunt, truthfully and weighty
Heed the sapience even when is naughty
Graphics and symbols engraved
On paths shady enlightened
By magic of the fallen paved
With gates and keepers darkened
A band of spirits the deed enact
So the mortals can contact
The undead and the departed
The unknown….and the retarded
God and Satan are debating
If it’s the echo of a forgery
But we find them guns calibrating
When the naked truth reveals its mystery
Science and religion are antiques
When developing new techniques
Thru mists and witchcraft you are reborn
By the gracious god’s quill and his sinning thorn
Fathom everything with grace
While you seek the god
No mask can hide your taint
But for getting his embrace
Enthrall the perky muse on the forsaken rod
To rotten the new aphrodisiac saint
There is the foulest of decisions
When waste becomes from diamonds and gold
The corpse of the quill carries obsessions
Everyone will greedy taste
Panting hard and deep losing their chaste
As you, with last breath, to him thy soul you’ve sold
Your body is a vestige of a primal
Hymn of tears, death, and blood
Into a ravishing juice melting grotesque
Of delirious ambrosia and acidic nectar
When is caressed and bitten feral
Bones are cleaned to the thrill an exotic mood
Offered on the boiled altar
Horny-skinned token of unholy picturesque
It’s been awhile since we’ve done voting on poetry, so I’m excited to see everyone coming out for their favorites. This voting is ONLY for this week. Remember to share and visit one another’s work. The poet with the highest number of votes will have their poem featured here tomorrow morning and will be entered as a submission for the upcoming magazine issue.
Our prompt this week was to use the word “game,” as the word itself or the theme of it. We had some great entries, so good luck and we’ll see you next Monday with a new prompt.
This week’s promptgot us playing around with another poet’s words.
Have you been reading your fellow poets? Well, now’s your chance!
Check them out and vote on your favorite. Voting will last until midnight tonight and the community favorite will be featured on the site tomorrow at 10 am EST.
Thank you for participating and we’ll see you next Monday for a new prompt!
In the meantime, consider submitting to our magazine, which is open and accepting submissions now. Or to our anthology for the theme of Back to Our Roots!
Don’t forget to sign up for our newsletter. We only send emails once a month, but this is how you can stay up on information regarding submissions and also how you’ll get your FREE copy of our magazine.
It’s that wonderful time of the week where we get to read all the fantastic work by the poets in our community and vote on our favorites! This week’s prompt got us into the mood for some chilly weather…
So grab a cup of hot chocolate, wrap up in your Snuggie (it’s totally okay if you actually own one of those), and get ready to warm yourself with words.
Remember, voting lasts until midnight EST and the winner(s) will be featured tomorrow at 10:00am!
Thanks for a wonderful week and we’ll see you next Monday for a new prompt.
