Thoughts of you put me into a passive trance
I would bamboozle myself if only to draw you for a fainting glance
Painters and seals may bring me to the fore
But you are all that matters in Mythrons lore


#3

i am but a humble 0/2
i wish for no-one but you
you, i cannot attack
you’re what i lack


#4

Serene heart flicker begins
Crimson mist kindled within
Meld together intertwines lips
Waltz through the heaven’s eclipse


#5

Your beautiful gaze never reaches down to me
Is it because I am weak and humble?
Your stride brings us closer but you still fail to see
As my act of love I’ll make you stumble.


#6

Awesome submissions, guys!


#7

Your eyes reflect the evening light just like a dying phoenix’ flame.
They capture me, as does your gentle smile when you say my name.
You are my world, and yet your kindness fills me with one great regret.
I know you love me, but not as a man - just as a simple pet.


#8

Not trying to ruin your poem, but I couldn’t help but laugh since I was looking at Halcyon’s profile picture while reading your poem :'D


#9

Is there an upper limit to the number of lines? Like does it have to be exactly four, or does it have to be in stanzas of four, or can it be any number?


#10

@epicflygon Can you take a look at this?


#11

None specified so no.


#12

Then is there a typo in the rules?


#13

  • Submission must be four lines long and must rhyme if they aren’t any explicit rhythmic technique.

#15

I am a black and white beast
Who seeks to earn your love
What i need the least
Is you giving me none


#16
