|3rd Spot||While I was Waiting by @ifeoluwa88|
At times, life can be cruel and cause one to feel like giving up. Sooner or later, someone or something will come along that will make the waiting worthwhile. A very lovely and encouraging poem by @ifeoluwa88, a recent addition to our community.”
Because it hurts to hope for the impossible
All I had was a suitcase of sad stories
With my walls built way high and impossible.
|2nd Spot||Lost by @vegaron|
This well-composed villanelle explores the reckless nature of youthfulness, and the price one pays for it.
Drugs and money he gets to play
With them he was truly fearless. But was struck awake by reality one day.
|1st Spot||Aeternity by @oculussensori|
Aeternity contains vivid imagery of a forest scene which develops a provoking metaphor for us to ponder our experience of life, our thoughts on death and the finite nature of time.
The Spider of sublime dreaming, treading as if in doubt
And too would step as well, on the stretched web of hopes,
Which further tears it’s tip, the higher it treads
Clipped in a star, a tip held in chaos.
