Poetry contest dudes.
Here's what I'm looking for: A poem about death,the end of something good, or relief. Or all three.
There's a catch, though.
Here's a list of words you can't use, and you can't use their forms, either:
Crimson (or scarlet)
And no thesaurus plundering, please. I won't disqualify you if you do so, but please, try to make it less obvious. Actually, I'd prefer if simple words were used.
Those of you who don't know what "plundering" means, it's a word I got off of the thesaurus and it's a synonym for rape. lol, bad joke, I know.
You have three months. Questions?
EDIT: I've already disqualified three or four entries. If you notice your poem is no longer in the entries section, you probably used the word "Love" or "Heart", or a variation of "love" such as "loved". I know it's easy to use these words without realizing it. Be careful.
And some of you did not format your poem like a poem. Stanzas are not required, but I do believe I asked for a poem, not a drabbly paragraph.
