7 Days to vote!
* Note starfire1036 is still banned so she/he is disqualified for this contest.
The deadline was June 30th, you were still banned as of yesterday so I am sorry but I can't allow your entry. As far as your poetry, you are an idiot (that isn't an insult as much as a smack to the face for a wake up call). If your poetry needs the approval of others then you are writing for the WRONG reason.
If you love to write then write, enter contests and others will notice. Write for others approval and they will notice that too...just not in the way you will want them to.
I love to write poetry but I couldn't careless if others understand or appreciate it. Sure everyone wants to be recognized for the skill and talent they have but to a real poet or writer that might not ever come or maybe just not in their life time or maybe they get a lot of attention now but fade away over time. Which is why you should write for you, the sharing and their opinion on your work... is a perk.
However, on a personal note... if you are only writing poems to be recognised then what are your poems for? Poems are heart felt emotions that are personal to you. It shouldn't make the slightest bit of difference if people don't read them. Its the fact that you expressed your feelings whether people like it or not.
Edit - It Appear's that Chiefy has already said the same thing even though it took me a while to write it.
After reading through all of the poems. I really did like the uniqueness in the approaches. Although, in some of the poem's, the variations in line length broke the flow and it left me a little disappointed I should say mostly in EmoNightMare's and receiverofhell. I did like the use of religious views/references in TaurusDemon23's poem. As well as Beasts poem being a dedication. Both idea's never really came to me so its nice to see work from different angles'.
Now the top choice's of mine are HolderOfTheDarkChalice and PhoenixSara. But my vote goes to PhoenixSara. The reference of a hateful female, just really seemed interesting and in same case's right in world. From my perspective it felt like the evil of mother nature, back to seek revenge. Thats what made it so appealing because it was so different and beautifully written.
I'll be the one to protect you from your enemies and all your demons
I'll be the one to protect you from a will to survive and a voice of reason
I'll be the one to protect you from your enemies and your choices son
They're one in the same, I must isolate you...

The past is the past, lets not dwell on it people. On another note, the POTM needed a little drama anyways.
I enjoyed reading everyones poems, so good job to everyone.
