XxAzzieBrokenxX's poem did not meet the theme so I did not include it for voting.
I voted for Beast, again. I like his writing style, and the drama in the poem is the best part.
Signature is a Gwenibe original.

I vote For starfire1036. I once knew a man who kept up with every culture custom among mideatersn tribes and could tell any one how to dress and what dialect they spoke, Never knew how lucky I was until I was stationed with a horride load expert who knew nothing of these things. Point is you recognize something most when you don't have it. Freedom is much the same, we often take it for granted. Also there is this bizarre symmetry in that someone who can right such wonderful works of love and beauty writes this piece when she hears the word freedom, it is so diverse.
I think its a tad weird to blatantly tell who I've voted for. Even if it's obvious. BUT, I will say once again how impressed I am with the outcome. And some of the newer members sure have been hitting up the poetry forum with some worthy pieces.
Go go gadget CREATIVITY!

I am happy to see people participating in the POTM vote, which I hope starfire1036 crushes this time, but the regular poetry forum is suffering a lot. There has not been a poem other than the ones by me posted since July 30, about a week ago. That is far too little. We need participation in the form of threads and criticism. It is meaningless to post unless there is feedback and a chance to read fresh material.
I dunno, I stress POTM because it is a contest, you only get that month to enter... and if there are few, or weak entries the contest isn't worth while. However I write in the poetry forum when I feel inspired to do so. I HATE when it seems like people are putting stuff in that forum just to have a thread there. Or when they comment and just say"That was a nice poem, I hope to see more". That's not really feedback at all.. I dont feel bad for not having a poem in the forum for over a week, because I don't write poetry to fill some forum quota. I actually think less is more in that forum. Or, a better way to put it is if you don't have something of quality to post... dont post it!the regular poetry forum is suffering a lot. There has not been a poem other than the ones by me posted since July 30, about a week ago. That is far too little.
This problem has gotten better since our post count doesn't increase for poems. But since I never abused the forum... I miss having my posts in said forum count for something.

WOOOOOO one vote haha. I voted for beast because he is not simple. His styles alter from poem to poem
Well I am happy to win this contest for a third time. My main goal was to defeat sazzy and I did so BOOYAH. I always said I did not need to cheat to beat the moderators and this is some good vindication. I will stop competing in the contest, I told myself three victories and I am gone. This is also the first time I have competed head to head with Starife 1036. I have always had tremendous respect for her so that is awesome. Only six votes is bad though, it shows less participation. That is the same amount of people participating, which is very low and I am sad. I think becasue there has been a percieved illegitimacy in voting the contest has suffered. But good idea for those who declared their votes, keeps people in power from selecting winners.
