My submision..can you enter more than one?




Easy torture talks
Bane of life endured
Sleeps beneath the dust

It cries uneasy tears
Sheds the dark for warmth
Condems the heart to rust

Raw it claws the sky
Furnace scalds the loss
Nightmare clouds the just

Escape of that unknown
Circles daily breath
Deviod of earthly trust

A Rictameter on Endings

The end
doesn’t begin
when you first die as some
might say. Instead it begins when
you first pick up the sword in anger or
hate. They take you just as surely
to that dark place where you
begin to reach
the end.

One per character, or per player? I.e., can a main character and an alt both enter?

Rest deprived,
In a dreamless night,
Without hunger or thirst.

As nature grows cold,
And the leaves grow old,
the darkness seems the worst.

From the cradle that rocks unstable
a hand reaches for Life’s cable.
But it’s too late to be nursed.

Too late for Life to renew,
When a soul passes through
The gate of Death feels cursed

Standing for the open grave
It seems it’s Life we crave
Death doesn’t need to be coerced.

The veil of Life is thrown aside,
For noone can ever hide,
The sack of tears will burst,

Rest deprived,
In a dreamless night,
Life seems to be dispersed.

One entry per contest per player. if you have a alt that wants to enter they are considered another player. I currently have two contests going. first one is your scariest creature and the second is the poetry contest. you can enter both and all your alts can enter both.

This is my most feared creature!!!!!

Postby Jade Silvermoon » Wed Oct 17, 2007 10:00 am

**Posting for Carmela** Char #51370




**Standing at the entrance to the Cemetery is the most hideous spider you ever saw***** Standing almost 6 feet tall, is a huge black hairy body sported by 8 distorted hairy legs. The mouth has huge pointed teeth, dripping with what looks like green ooze and blood combined seems ready to devour you, along with deadened eyes of dull black stare at you. As you get closer you feel as though the creature is moving towards you, it hisses and snarls...All of a sudden it lets out a blood curdling screech and attacks..............What happens next?

((*grins* Can't resist . . ))

When it rains
The drops have fallen for so long
That when they strike the stream’s face
They displace it . . .

Piercing the tension

Until the surface
Bristling with the points of upraised spears
Seems as if defending itself

When it is merely making room

And reaching up to embrace each drop

There will be room for me
in the end
Beneath the last bruised clouds
As sunset fades the colors from the world.

And death will quilt me.
The warp and woof a framework of love
Wrapped with every color ever dreamed.

And I will hear the soft, hissed whisper
As each thread gently snaps
And I drift free . . .

I think that death is a bright, wet grey,
And hell is silence.

Posting for Merit DU Goldsprings Char #141551

Softly the silence seeps into my soul
Accepting at last that I am truly old
Ancient to some , weary and tired
Still loved and even greatly admired
Oh these bones now creek
My heart still manages a faint beat

Sunrifter slides slowly silently across the sky
I lie watching as the blood drips at my side
The tide ebbs the birds fly by...
Turmoil of life seems so small at this time
I cough and I splutter , gasping for one last breath to pen a letter
Hoping and praying that the parchment be found

My minds seems to drift ,I cannot find the stylus or ink
My hands flounder ,I know I cannot last much longer
Forgetting quill I use my finger , in blood I write
I am thankful for the eternal joy of my life

I am thankful for the birds and friends and songs
I am thankful for the memories and the trees finding a place I belong
I am thankful for the hunt, and how battle made my heart pump
I am thankful for my wife the love of my life
I am thankful for so many gifts and treasures found
Listening to the excitement of the beautiful people in Valorn

My hands stop moving but not my mind
The carcasses of the beast they lay close to my side
The village is safe the temple not defiled
Mayhem they can no longer wreak to this seaside
Tracking them was too easy , just look for the trail of bodies
Restraint was never in me I should have waited for the rest of my party

Foolish was I to charge alone , but the temple was close and so was my home
I hear at last the voices coming near, my friends will soon find me laying here
Dying alone, yet finding peace at last , I take my last breath
Close my eyes and now become a memory of the past
One of many that hopefully when spoken off
Will always be said he remembered honor and courage first

Jezzara'a poem

Postby JezzTheWarrior » Fri Oct 19, 2007 8:10 pm

The heat of battle's gone.
Time floats in frozen flakes.
The pain that seared so strong
Has fled with all uncertainty

Glimpsed pictures of a life,
As seen through many eyes,
Forgetting now the strife,
To focus on the destiny.

The furrowed brow uncreased
In quiet and peaceful calm
Where struggle all has ceased
Against sure death's intensity

A steady reaching hand
Now opens up a door.
One last look at this land.
One step into eternity.

Horrors by Bella Anna 59566



The silence is the first thing you notice as the world seems to stop. As you lift your head the birds take to flight in the distant trees almost as if the know it approaches. Gathering your cloak tightly around your body you quicken your steps , as you feel it drawing nearer, coming closer and closer until you stop and turn around feeling it almost upon you .

Peering in all directions as you make a slow circle you cannot see it but you know it is there close, it is watching, it is coming , off you run fleet of foot and nimble your blood beating so fast your heart is as an anvil being beaten by a hammer.

Running for shelter looking for some place to hide hoping you have lost it in your flight , knowing that whatever follows is dangerous , perhaps mortally so , all of a sudden you stop as you hear it ...

A blood curling cackle , as malicious a sound of laughter you could have ever imagine pieces the silence and makes the hairs on the back of your hand stand erect .

As quick as your flight whatever was chasing you was agile enough to have somehow gotten in front of you , such speed, such fear it has within its soul could not come from anything living it must be that you have encountered one of the un-dead.

A creature resurrected by the arcane arts of dark magic and evil given to this world to seek out and destroy what it hates most. It seeks what it cannot have what it craves and what we have , for it is a pale reflection of shadow and flesh bones fused together and animated without a soul.

The soulless seek out the living to seek out and destroy the spark that is our humanity, and have us become as they are fowl creatures , festering , rotting , letting out a putrid smell of decaying disfigured humans now able to walk the world once more!

The living horror finally steps out from behind a building confirming all my fears as it approaches .

Fluid and graceful this disfigured corpse flows towards me as sinew and bones poke out in paces of its darkened charred flesh. Agile and quick it comes closer and closer as I again take to flight .Evading its un-dead arms and its soulless eyes and head with skin drawn so tight it seems to be a skull.....

Hissing it follows a raspy sound terrifying me to my core I run until I am cornered and then knowing at last there is only escape or death I draw sword and stand firm as it approaches....
