A second round of voting is over. This time, to make sure no one cheated their way to first place, we counted the votes twice.

 

In third place we have EastGinaNowhere's poem "Awake Heart"

in second place we have Comrade's poem "Crestfallen"

and in first place we have GreenDayBass' poem "Yet She Rests Her Soul"

 

I think the winning poem deserves to be promoted once more, so here goes.

 

"Yet She Rests Her Soul"

I wrote letters
under glimpses
of rain;
to smell fragrances
of souls divine,
pleases tenderly
against flesh
 
and immortality
has her heart
engraved in
molten stone -
she sheds
her name
in cavities,
weaving to eternal
burials - ah,
a morale, by choice
flanks to stars.
 
bounded hands are
a victim
of chains trapped
in gravity, like rings
gathering above
bare chests; lest
they whisper
and divide
to an escaping altar;
bare bones are innocent
in chestnut boxes.
 
steps arrange to owe
a glare beyond
red roses and white tulips,
grace slips to a delicate
sparrow;
lonely by day,
tired of loved souls
being swept away;
by far - her Heaven
is listed besides beauty
and such a curse
if blessed is
storied unto memory,
the same fate
leaves hopeless;
by night until
I rest with
her gentle voice
wandering in tides.
 
 

Congratulations, for real this time!

We will contact you about your prize, which is a T-shirt from the official Green Day store.

 

Also, thanks to those of you who again took the time to vote. We appreciate it.

 

 

Here are the rest of the poems, and their authors.

Spoiler

If you could not find your poem in here, it would either be because you didn't submit one, or it is meant as a lesson to you not to make 30+ accounts to vote for yourself.

 

Enjoy the poems!

Big congrats to Adam! And medium congrats to the runners up :D. And well done to everyone who entered as well, you've produced some fine poetry. It's really interesting to see who wrote them all having read them without knowing.
