Contest entries (the last one!) part eleven!

Robin 3am

 Kings and Queens summoned us.


He Gave Gifts tantamount to
A Pot of Gold if only we would embark on
The Search for the Giant Squid.
We pondered through The Darkness and the Dawn,
And with Nothing to Lose... or so we thought,
Though it be In the Dead of Winter we accepted.
So began the Descent Into Hell
Into the Sea of Monsters
With a Simple Faith as our only insurance.
We saw The Rainbow Fish.
We saw Narwhals.
We saw Sea Monsters.
And then The Unthinkable...
We Found it.
And though he had A Strong Poison,
And we were merely The Borrowers Afloat,
In the sea matched against That Hideous Strength... we fought,
And were nearly Left For Dead
In The Lost World of the sea,
But we would Have His Carcasse though it cost us much,
And we would ascend toward the Light and the Glory,
And our greatest prize would be Humility

UNTITLED, DUE TO AN EXCESS OF TITLES
 


I knew from DAY ONE in GEORGIA
You were THE AMERICAN,
THE MISANTHROPE,
TELLING LIES FOR FUN AND PROFIT as if
they were A CHILD'S GARDEN OF VERSES,
and TALKING TO THE SUN
like a LOST DOG.

We spent ONE MORE SUNDAY in THE CHAMBER,

IN THE COLD ROOM
of LA CASA DE LOS ESPÍRITUS.
HAVING OUR SAY, you claimed.

I was CHARMED AND ENCHANTED,

trying to DECIPHER your FATAL SECRETS.
For THE FAMILY, you said.
You were CHARMED AND DANGEROUS,
a MONSTER with a KILLER INSTINCT
for THE SUBTLE KNIFE.

OUT OF THE SHADOWS, like a MOMENT OF TRUTH,

came THE BETTER PART OF DARKNESS.
Not SHADES OF GRAY, after all,
but a LEGACY OF ASHES.
I'll be GONE TOMORROW, EMMA.
SAY GOODBYE, never to MIRA SI YO TE QUERRÉ.


With THE THIRD STRIKE, my METAMORPHOSIS is complete.
For me, it's THE END OF AMERICA.
MORE TWISTED, you,
stay in THE DARK with THE UNSEEN,
in the CANYONS of your OBSESSION.

Julie 9:41am
29 year old
SHOPAHOLIC TIES THE KNOT
with SOMETHING BORROWED
from THE LOVE OF HER LIFE:
THE BOOK OF TOMORROW.
AFTERWARDS, at the reception,
THE BRIDESMAID PACT
exposes PAST SECRETS
while playing SPIN THE BOTTLE,
and THREE TIMES A BRIDESMAID
LUCY SPRINGER GETS EVEN
with HER BROODING ITALIAN SURGEON husband.
LOST FOR WORDS,
SHOPAHOLIC AND BABY (yes she's pregnant)
gives her new husband the SILENT TREATMENT
and decides he should RETURN TO SENDER
and learn some LIFE SKILLS.
She finds a SAFE HAVEN
in THE BEACH STREET KNITTING SOCIETY AND YARN CLUB
until her husband comes back and says REMEMBER ME?
IT MUST BE LOVE
because she becomes his MRS PERFECT,
gives birth to a MINI SHOPAHOLIC,
and they live happily, ALWAYS AND FOREVER.

Laurie 10:46am


DAY ONE GONE
Into THE WHITE DARKNESS.
A NATION and
THE LOVELY BONES STOLEN.
Abrupt THE AGE OF ORPHANS.
IN SEARCH OF TIME to understand.
ONE SHOT WINGS THE ENEMY.
ROOM appears in THE LOST WORLD
RESTORING HARMONY.
To the BELOVED we SPEAK
When THE SKY IS EVERYWHERE.












-----------

Abby 11:28am


THE DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE and
THE PRINCE OF THIEVES have a
FLASH BURNOUT
SUPERNATURALLY
FORBIDDEN
PERFECT CHEMISTRY.
AND THEN THINGS FALL APART
due to her BAD TASTE IN BOYS.
He's GONE, leaving her with nothing but
THE PARTICULAR SADNESS OF LEMON CAKE.
















------------

Christina 1:59pm

A MAN RIDES THROUGH
THE LOST CONTINENT,
MARKED
by LIFE, THE UNIVERSE AND EVERYTHING.
THE LAST HERO brought low.
Still all RISK and REFLEX

saving THE KINGDOM,

but no longer COUNTING THE COFFINS.
THE TRUTH is
he hopes, MAYBE THIS TIME, to find
SALVATION IN DEATH.

I would love it if there was a prize, and if I won, and if it was to be bumped to the front of the line on query shark. *if wishes were horses...*

Janet Reid said...

Well, there is a prize, but it's not that. QueryShark chomps are a whole separate deal.
