    Okey dokey, it’s time for a poetry contest! Your topic is Hope!

    Rules:
    1. Maximum of 32 lines
    2. Ends on April 2nd, 12 AM EST
    3. Send entries to me or Captain.Heroin
    4. All entries are to remain anonymous until end of contest, as Captain Heroin kindly reminded me.


    We’ll figure out prizes, most likely some manner of custom tile, as we go along.

    Happy writing!

    My hopes are blighted, my heart is broken, my life a burden, everything around me is sad and mournful; earth has become distasteful to me, and human voices distract me. It is mercy to let me die, for if I live I shall lose my reason and become mad.

    don't post your entries here, because we need the authors to be anonymous. PM them only to New, or me, as per the instructions of the contest.

    Seems like no one submitted anything.

    I will cry forever alone.

    Aw, I'd have entered if I'd seen the original post. Extend the date, though not much point if I'm the only entrant and I WIN (with a potentially shit poem)
    Maybe I'll write one anyway just for the challenge of a title and size limit.
    I'll definitely give the next comp a go though (if you ever bear to run another one for all the lazy trier-poets who only look at the new posts section when they come on & don't really dive into forums blind & miss loads of stuff, or is that just me?)

    Well tell your friends to sign up to Bluelight to enter a poetry contest where the prize is most likely a custom user status.

    That’s a good reason to join, right?

    No, we're not joking. Please encourage people to join for the sake of Words. I have always been huge on online cultures for this sort of thing. Writers need to get together more.

    Yes, I see no problem with whatever you come up with. Just share it with us, and I'm sure we'll give a thumbs up.
