Horror

Ok, this poem was written as a contest entry at http://allpoetry.com/contest/2425545 . It's great fun, it involves making use of some or all of a certain number of words to write a poem. I like being involved in contests like this as it helps improve me word bank :) Anyway, here's my own take, if u ever stumble across this blog and read this, why not give it a go?

Here the words:

Asperity
Bleed
Cloud
Degree
Eulogy
Force
Guard
Happen
Insecure
Justice
Kill
Law
Midnight
Night
Opaque
Pressure
Quintessential
Red
Scar
Tomorrow
Unknown
Vex
Whim
Xenophobe
Yesterday
Zone

Here's my own entry:

Horror

on December 31, 2008. © Stani, All rights reserved

Nature’s asperity causes you to bleed
moving around in a cloud of pain
you wonder to what degree this suffering
eulogy already written for one so young.

You feel the force of impending doom
on your guard, waiting for it to happen
insecure in false sense of security
knowing that blind justice could kill dreams of fairness.

The law sits in midnight
pressure brings hope that the night will end soon
enemy of quintessential thoughts vanquished
opaque memories finally clear as crystal, bringing forth long lost knowledge

Red the color of thoughts swirling in the mind of the xenophobe
evil plans to vex even the thickest of skin
thick scar unseen, unknown, pus festering beneath,
pandering to unrelenting whim which brings forth
sweet memories of yesterday before journey to the outer zone.
