tnaylor21286: Are song lyrics acceptable? ( 5 years and 2117 days ago )
tnaylor21286: because all songs are poems, however not all poems are songs.

Eladine: If you read the description you could read from there that we allready have been doing songs before and this time its about poems. Although I do agree that songs are often poems, they are not always because poetry is usually not written on music. ( 5 years and 2115 days ago )
Eladine: So my idea was NOT to do songs ( 5 years and 2115 days ago )
Drivenslush: Songs are Poetry Eladine, it's a given

"Leave me be, I don't want to argue
I'd just get confused and I'd come all undone
If I agree, well, it's just to appease you
Cause I don't remember what we're fighting for"

Just a song called TIME by Sarah Mclachlan, but oh so beautiful poetry

to DO SONGS, is to DO POETRY.. they are the same thing even though you feel you should disagree (a sad place to be)
If someone draws a feeling from words in a SONG and it inspires them
and they read those words in the phrase in the shape of the poem
I say don't slam them with such vehemence but accept their idea and
rejoice in their joy of being creative... there's enough misery in the world not to force more on people, just for your need to be correct

a soul moved by words (even in the form of a song) is poetry, and there is nothing you can do about it.. just accept it and rejoice ( 5 years and 2115 days ago )
Eladine: Drivenslush you say songs are poetry, thats just fantastic, however it still was not my idea to do songs for this contest.

RickLaMesa: Ela..can we take recipes from a cook book because some recipes are really good and the food becomes an art form and poetry is an art form right? ( 5 years and 2115 days ago )
Eladine: lol you wanna chop my shopping list too? :P ( 5 years and 2114 days ago )
Muazam: Hey great contest ! , would love to enter , just a quick question? Would a quote class as a poem? Silly question i know. Just wondering ( 5 years and 2113 days ago )
Eladine: no a quote is a quote and not a poem, in my opinion at least. ( 5 years and 2113 days ago )

Howdie stranger!

by Amanda Dwyer

I liked you,
then forgot.
I loved you once,
No More.
I hate you now,

I know what you did to me,
you fucked me up real bad.
so open your eyes so you can see,
you screwed me up, you're all i had.

so now i wander, lonely and cold,
i tie the noose around my throat.
my life is ending, my soul is sold.
im leaving now, and heres my note.

and now im lost. (5 years and 2114 days ago)

I Will Love You Forever

I love you so deeply,
I love you so much,
I love the sound of your voice
And the way that we touch.
I love your warm smile
And your kind, thoughtful way,
The joy that you bring
To my life every day.
I love you today
As I have from the start,
And I'll love you forever
With all of my heart.

It's Dark In Here

I am writing these poems
From inside a lion,
And it's rather dark in here.
So please excuse the handwriting
Which may not be too clear.
But this afternoon by the lion's cage
I'm afraid I got too near.
And I'm writing these lines
From inside a lion,
And it's rather dark in here.

Shel Silverstein (5 years and 2117 days ago)
