I entered a Poetry Contest on the Helium website recently. I was doing OK in the beginning but have slipped way down in the rankings :( I'm surprised really as my poetry usually ranks really well. I have three poems in Number One spots but unfortunately none of these titles are in the contest, typical, LOL!  Here's a little one I wrote to poke fun at myself and the contest. Took me all of two minutes and is complete drival so they'll probably love it.

My favourite poet is me
How could it not be?
I relate to every rhythm and rhyme
I love to read it to pass the time

My favourite poet is me
How can others not see?
My heart and soul in every line
Penning the words is sublime

My favourite poet is me
Is there any hope for me?
Poetry competitors don't share my views
But entering keeps my amused

Later Love KB

I'm with you on the writing from the heart but I can't resist putting the odd two minute poem in.

two observations on the helium thing:
First, no-one fully understands your heart and anything that isn't superficial (or doesn't refer to God) will be marked down.
Secondly, I looked at my stuff from last months contest and generally they are doing better now they aren't in a live contest because no-one is interested in tactical voting anymore.

anyway, I usually 'get' your poetry and enjoy it so up their's ;)

Karen you're a fantastic poet, it's a cut throat contest though. This is the first time I've ever stuck with one and it's been out sheer meanness I have hehehehhe. Usually it's the same ole people winning each time.

Eh I wont win but it's been one heck of a ride.

Love your piece.

Toadee - Tactical voting...they will go to poetry hell for that.

Missy - I hope you beat all of them (not with a stick though).

Keith - Thanks Keithy.
