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

    Stage Left - December WOTM Challenge

    Stage Left - December WOTM Challenge



    High hopes for the night as we hope to be as good as gold
    A go getter; The best and the brightest to deliver a bold
    performance of the night - We've practiced this play for months
    Persistence pays for a picture perfect night; I've got a hunch.
    The two of us will tango as we walk the stage brisk, not rushed
    I'll hold his hand happily and recite lines of love - crowd hushed.
    A labor of lust is worth all the hours that I've bartered at night.
    I'll look before I leap as adrenaline will make me larger than life
    We pray for rave reviews from a round robin night ending in rain
    The grand finale leaving us drenched; I'll drip dry in the drains
    For we're the best and brightest and we'll bite the bullet today
    On a small stage, set to be the biggest to deliver a grand play

    He shakes the dew from the clouds to soften the situation
    Making the shrew don shrouds from constant manipulation
    We see it as a control to shape life to what it is
    What it muster to cast streams to divide and conquer
    So edges of reality drape light to tuck it in
    Giving a luster to fast dreams, be applied and conjure
    Through grated ground it collects, bringing it to a closure
    Imposing the resounding effects, springing free from exposure
    Its cynosure contagious that it withers infantile smiles
    Courageous to defile God's work, cynically guile
    But I stand to greet that will cleanse the varied grime
    Parry thoughts of lime pie into hot cocoa marshmallow cravings
    Caress fingertips like palmetto shavings with ferried lines
    My stiletto arm glide through the air while this libretto's playing....

    RAIN RAIN GO AWAY, PLEASE COME BACK ANOTHER DAY
    WE NOT WORTHY, I'M SAD TO SAY, PLEASE RAIN GO AWAY

    Re: December WOTM Challenge

    Diamonds, glitter, romance in the dark
    The girl of my dreams put a cramp in my heart
    Beauty and the Tramp, her ugly tore me apart
    Adored her smug look as we hugged in the park
    Philanthropist, humor, personality’s art
    Cultivated lust right where moralities parked
    The start of my end, bitter pill is defeat
    Bent myself against will just to feel her mystique
    Quarter ‘til 3 and were still in the sheets
    Nails in my back while I’m squeezing her cheeks
    Memories, feelings fade in stages for weeks
    Gave my all. But she claims that I made her a cheat
    Guess vows were just words we made to delete
    When love leaves, emptiness is easy to seek
    Believe in nothing, but scars. Every welt every knot
    Extend your hand. so you can catch every tear that I dropped

    Bye.

    He’s here, she’s gone



    The moist conditions stir unwanted visions
    He couldn’t help but be given of a failed mission
    Precipitation masks his vision but he can see
    with immense clarity that she’s no longer living
    There’s the emptiness and the grief, sentiment with no relief
    These words are scribbled on long-leaf
    The storm steals his body heat
    a thief with sword in sheath
    yet with nothing to bequeath
    Oddly the cold restores his sense of self
    a reminder that he hasn’t yet been sent to hell
    In a world with such pain it’s hard to tell
    or at least very well if this life is heaven or a cell
    He begins to walk, maybe for just a couple blocks
    he sees the yellow bleeding lines of chalk


    “Something I never did,” he finally talks to himself it shocks his self “I didn’t protect my flock”

    Space
    Two aimless stars collide in the dark of space.
    Dictated by quantum design
    propelling purpose and “place”; our worth,now, engaged
    Was it God? A divine conduct? My life, a dark, mindless murky of space
    But she taught there’s beauty in the dark and truth in the angle
    What lurks an array of colors portrayed in salient contour.
    Observe how absence appraise our worth with distance...
    "Apart". "A Part" - see how space can make a world of difference?
    What's yours? “Let it sink in.”
    An allure? A twisted descent? Whatever it was, she had me.
    Perhaps her heightened sense of wonderment
    Scraping the skies to converse in spaces between words
    And time ceased to exist in between gaze.
    Her smile, peach, summer fizz and spring berry wine
    She riddled secrets of the stars, her meanings became MY totality
    As I breathe in ocean silt, staring out this ivory balcony

    She puts a dent in the sky on the grandest stage of them all,
    The sound of her voice alone causes the rain to fall.
    For ever reminiscing the pain and the jaded calls,
    Whether it were her beauty or her talents that created the applause.
    Never knowing but apathetic as each year passed by,
    She tried to grasp life,
    But she never felt a connection like being stared at with glass eyes.
    She takes a break from the scene and the majority pays no attention,
    And in those moments she builds a home and slowly hones her affections.
    Not for the masses but for her self, she remembers her desires,
    She yearns to be back on the stage and scream "This girl is on fire!"
    And as the crowd erupts into another thunderous applause,
    The sky roars in agreement as the rain suddenly stalls.
    A picture perfect moment for Alicia; the burning girl,
    Drenched in euphoria, she pauses for the camera in front of the turning world

    why?
    as long as you don't vote for your own, you don't have to disqualify your entry.
    There's enough judges to get a fair vote, and if needed we'll top up. @Jukon , that ok?
    Also, vote in the panel thread Enoch.
    I think we have to move them over there.
    I don't know. It's too hot here to think. Friggen 33 when i last looked.

    Re: December WOTM Challenge

    i think im going to go with sammy on this one.

    i narrowed it down to Sammy and 143. I really liked 143's verse. he actually linked it a nursery rhyme which is cool. . but Sammys verse had much more personality and drive to it. I also liked YD, but i think his attack was just too direct. Im personally a fan of writing more outside the picture then directly to it.

    vote= sammy

    Sammy for me, the direction he went was interesting and he kept it entertaining with his style and overall execution

    143 a very close second
