Bless (pointbeemo) | 19 comments Hi peeps :D This is one of my poems, it's a simpler one, but I like the message ♡ (which might be just a peek into my random thoughts). *It's a song, but the tune is in my head only xD. *
It's called Seizing The Sun and I might change it, we'll see. At this point it uses a lot of symbolism to describe love and what it can do.

It isn't reconditioning
It's not a catalalyst, I fear
There's nothing on the edge of time
That makes the world stretch out from here.

It is not only work of night
It cannot be force of mankind
That could create this syzygy
This perfect universe aligned.

It is more than a planet's pull
It is not simply gravity
There must be something stronger yet
If you can be right next to me.

I longed to take your hand in mine
Your eyes had galaxies inside
You made sadness seem ethereal
Your tears were stardust when you cried.

You'd show defiance, detonate
We'd come together, explode
Our reign wasn't infinite,
But every passing hour slowed.

I found it hard to look at you
Eventually you taught me how
You're too bright, supernova
It all revolves around you now.

The comets chased our energy
I watched the beauty of your blaze
I lingered on the precipice
That lay between voids and your gaze.

I stepped back, so you came forth
We were engaged in our last dance
It was not everyday we clashed
We adjusted to circumstance.

Your laughter was a solar wind
Each move I made begged you to burn
I reached for you across the space
Your flaming heart pulsed in return.

You flashed beautiful claws at me
I pulled away, but you cut through
As silver love leaked through my skin
I was taught how to bleed for you.

I wished for light enough to stand
My lungs were filled with passion's will
Our axis shifted jarringly
And finally, the skies were still.

I saw you preparing to fade
I grasped your gentle, dying spark
I used my dreams to revive you
With a whisper, I stopped the dark.

We had relied on rage for years
That's how we set the seas ablaze
An ocean needs a battleship
To be submerged under your gaze.

Fury would bring you to your knees
Our struggling would set us free
The waves of crossfire I sent
Would light up our vicinity.

I am ready to seize the sun
I'll twirl with you and match your style
I'll steal the moon to accent you
If it means that you'll stay awhile.

We stood as the centerpiece
I fell for you and for your glow
You drifted, I tethered you
So I ask you, where will we go?

It isn't reconditioning
It's not a catalalyst, I fear
There's nothing on the edge of time
That makes the world stretch out from here.

The course of fate has been revised
You've gazed upon my inner beast
But eclipses repeat themselves,
So know there's more to be released.

The battle left us both with wounds
But there are ways to seal gashes
Learn the choreography
And dip me in these cosmic ashes.

Okay, so I decided to enter with a poem I wrote recently. I wrote it to tell a story, but also with a type of metaphor. This is the full thing, and I hope you like it! :D

Web of Hope

I came to be with fingers
stretching out on every side
I was small and couldn't fly
but my capacity was wide
And I had my own oasis
where clouds and stars collide.

I learned to weave illusions
with the crystals of my soul
There was always something missing
though I faked that I was whole
Somehow I still felt crippled
with the earth at my control.

Serendipity grows above the lovely fields of fractured rainbows
With lakes of Eden swirling streaks of incandescent blue
With swans and fawns and all earth's tenderhearted creatures too.

There were moments when the
film of sunshine rippled with a sadness
And I feared my lovely haven
would collapse under this madness
Leaving room for lamentation
to surround me in the vastness.

A bounty lied before me
seeming less now like a prize,
And I wondered as I crouched
before a brilliant sunrise
If my blessing was a curse
encased in golden stipes and lies.

I saw everything, an eye
for every blade of grass
My little face- eight beady
twinkling orbs of glass
So many shades surrounded me
and I looked everywhere
The lucent colors bloomed,
a sight I had none with to share.

I came to realization like
the ocean meets the shore
The hollowness became a
longing etched into my core
I was't able to withstand the
looming darkness anymore

My heart sang out in protest
when my body sent to sleep
No warmth, no bonds,
no promises for me to keep
Though shadows rose above
my head and whispered doubt.
I knew that day the change
would have to come about.

Between two weak branches on
the old twisted willow tree
I was the world, and great
green earth was getting lonely
Alas I found a delicate
space to start anew
And my spider webs were
built to capture you.

Haley S (haleyjs) From the World Above

I awoke in the middle of the night
To see the stars shining bright;
I didn’t know that I was destined to
See the world from a different view.

I saw a star flying down to me
With wings that would break me free
From the wonderful world of below
To a better world to follow.

The earth was now underneath
While the planets were now in my sheath;
They were my weapons and guardians,
Whom I would trust like my own custodians.

I did not know what would happen next
Until I saw the sun with all of its effects;
The world of the worlds was real and alive
Like a single bee in the humongous hive.

I was not here so I could rule the world
But so I could believe and be that girl
To see the world not as it is
But as it should be.

I'm here.
I can be unwanted but I'm here.
I can be wanted but I'm here.
I can leave but I'm here.
I can stay but I'm here.
I can love but I'm here.
I can hate but I'm here.
I can die but I'm here.
I can live but I'm here.
I can be somebody but I'm here.
I can be nobody but I'm here.
I can continue but I'm here.
I can stop but I'm here.
I try but it doesn't work.
I cry but it does nothing.
I see and am told to speak.
I speak and am told to watch.
I hear and am told to listen.
I love and am told to hate.
I pull and am told to push
I try but it doesn't work.
I cry but it does nothing.

Hi Trica unfortunately entering after the 5th isn't allowed. I don't want it to seem unfair to the contestants. But if all of the contestants are okay with it you can stay in the contest. Good luck.

If your a contestant post weather your okay with it or not.
