    Weekly Challenge Winners

    Week 1: TheIllyricist

    Miss Passion
    Rested upon that winter throne
    Sits the darkest queen I harbor
    Take her flames as my own
    To try and break blackest armor.
    Lustful love liquefied, a
    Cup full of sinner’s fire
    To take an everlasting sip
    Of the burning venom
    Wrap its searing coils
    From throat to heart
    Curtained mind blinded eyes
    But pulsing passion bleeds
    That stained crimson kiss
    From dark mistress lips
    And over time she will remain at last
    Or ever always fade in tears of ash.


    Explanation
    Emily and I both agreed on the winner. We chose this winner
    based on fluidity and the abstract level that made this more
    interesting. It held a lot of weight; story wise and the imagery
    displayed was extremely vivid and really helped enhance the
    piece. While maintaining simplicity, Ill was able to layer his work
    without sacrificing quality.

    the theory of cause and effect is flawed,
    we expect the outcome to mirror the struggle, that's wrong.

    Week 2: TheIllyricist

    Mindedness
    His thoughts trickle down the glassy surface
    Light beam expressions from the bulb
    Outside the box because that's what they told him to, do
    As they say but how can he forget about how they act

    Multiple minds minding his mind
    Mother, father, brothers, sisters,
    Friends and authors all have wisdom to give
    Yet he wonders "Which mind is mine?"

    Box the outside inside the box
    Question, will the words on the page
    Ever be his own or is his spoken stream
    Seamed from pre-existent threads.

    Explanation
    To be fair, I wasn't keen on picking the same person two times in a row
    but Ill's abstract style really grabbed both mine and Emily's attention.
    The point of this competition is to break from the norm and really
    layer a piece together that exemplifies the topic, while maintaining a
    cohesive story. And that's what Ill had that no other piece had.

    Week 3: Goliath

    Ricky was a gangster in South Boston, ripped off the wrong guy and found problems,
    underground options weren't working and he kept burning bridges without conscious.
    The goodfellas doubt Ricky's hustle, and knock down his door with fifty knuckles,
    it becomes a tricky shuffle, Ricky's jumping out the back window into filthy rubble.
    Ricky's limping down the alleyway, ankle badly sprained, fighting to reach his escape,
    breathing changed as he's feeling an increase in pain, trying not to overheat in the rain.
    Ricky found an abandoned house, a place to lay low while his injuries heal,
    ribs tenderly sealed in between buckshot and internal bleeding, his misery's real.
    Ricky wakes up the next morning to a cup of water and a man dressed in black,
    flicking cigarette ash, with a pistol in his hand and a bottle of pills next to the glass.
    Stressed and brash, Ricky begins to panic, he's unprepared for judgement day,
    the man brushes his legs, asks Ricky how he wants it, overdose or slug to his face?
    Staring at his blood stains, Ricky begins to cry wishing he could turn back time,
    his words tied to his tongue, the sight of the gun slides into the corner of his black eye.

    Ricky wipes away his tears then looks at the glass of water and takes a breath,
    he made a mess... now he pays the debt with two bullets through his brain and chest.

    Week 4: Enoch Light


    Often forced to wait patience has been a course of fate
    Contortioned state, bending hate around remorse’s stake
    This portions blank, never made a space to call a home
    Or saved a tear to fall, I crawled those places all alone
    Complacent moans, shadows run adjacent to this ship
    The makeshift sea dweller crying lakes to sway amidst
    From every day I lift these oars to brave a storm of bliss
    To every former kiss that landed dormant at these lips
    The Morning mists or winds that brush the fabric at my hips
    To the sun that lifts across the Ocean’s stagnant drift
    A tragic shift, my life has capsized before your eyes
    Baptized in your beliefs, surmised, and casted out to die
    So many pouts of ‘why?’ I build this brittle tree of shame
    Nailed the boards with every tooth I broke to stay the same
    Sailed the open plain of water just to meet you there
    Only greeted my lonely, only me, the only person here

    Guess I’ll wait longer

    Week 5: KnowP

    Look, I'm a torn book. I hate it.
    Full of content and pages of amazement
    Glazed with insane lines defined with ungraded phrases
    May feel degraded or inflated, perceptions options
    Blessed with topics topped with filler for the subconscious
    Consciously confusing the truths, we see as obnoxious
    The foot of a loch ness, the tail of the whale
    Fact or fiction, you’ll be left on a boat in a forest going through hell
    Every chapter is laughter where decisions are tested
    at the end of the lesson, a shambled life is what you’re left with
    Realizing we’re destined for greatness, scrolls of souls
    after much fight in plight, we’re merely a face on a totem poll
    From old to mold, we’re a character in the scheme of the things
    Nightmares leaving us in silence should be the reason we scream for dreams
    Creative teams of authors and a thought forces brains to come alive
    If books are where you hide the truth, everything else must be built on lies…

    (sorry this took so long, we picked a winner a while ago and I forgot to update this)

    Week 6: KnowP

    standing toe to toe to what I believe is me
    or at least use to be before the scrutiny
    the failures and disappointments, the abortion
    the termination, tax inflations, the divorces
    parents dead corpses, life's a bunch of horse shit
    we crawl around in, God this is odd and morbid
    or is this the norm and fate for the race
    in a mirror reflecting an unknown face
    come home, stay, be responsible and driven
    you wont learn to receive until all you have is given
    one day you'll arise to every bad decision
    and realize life is a choice, being blind is a vision
    the tide isn't crimson, it doesn't have a pigment
    our eyes are compromised, even the sky is different
    fact or fiction, i wanna be alive once again
    will I ever get the picture, or live life outside of the frame

    Week 8: 143

    It was poetry before anyone could hold a pen
    Every blow being a count against time for it to suspend
    The glancing wind shaving minutes, braving ignorance
    Reshaping infidels impotance to wither inference
    Who would know that a controversial view was accepted
    Collected supporters rejoicing when he turned conqueror
    Proof that education doesn't transfer wisdom into dialect
    Yet the words had abilities to pull deafness from wanderers
    His stance grew shades from infantile smiles and cries
    Miles of unwanted flies turning into savaging killer bees
    Willing being on the forefront, rebuking filed lies....
    Reclaiming the moniker when opportunist fuel distilleries
    Hand of angels, tactics of a post modern revolution
    Showing his greatest greatness in lauded devolution
    Now butterflies speak softly, praising his story
    With the chanting of BUMAYE raised in glory......
