Noooooooo! You should definitely still enter! Poetry isn't limited by rhyming ability or format, not at all. Just express yourself :biggrin:

Once there was a bird

Everyone thought he was absurd

He always missed his shots

It didn't make him look hot

Until one day

He began to say

I will win!

So he tossed meathead into a bin

My Limerick

There once was a bear so fat,
To pwn his enemies he sat,
One day a bird,
Stupid but nerd,
Taunted the bear and got flat.

Platinum platinum, how I need thee
Without my thrash I move slow as a tree
Without your help I cannot hope to win
For to join an elite game without you is a sin
When I receive a purple my heart begins to sink
Because with you I know it could have been a pink
Work and school do not give me enough time to play
So to remain competitive I download worthless apps each day
Platinum platinum, how I need thee
STS won’t you give me a million for free?

Pocket Legends, Star Legends, Dark Legends,
Oh how all three deserve some attention.
Each composing of perfects things an MMORPG needs,
We truly never know how far STS sha'll exceed.
In truth, Pocket legends is my game,
So please don't go off and flame.
If you wish to be a Legend's master,
then keep on leveling just a bit faster.
I may only be level nine,
but my time will soon shine.

we live in a four dimensional virtual pocket of dream,
Spacetime has made it possible in an alterrian theme.
The streets are hidden, not up and down,
at the speed of light, moving town to town.
First and foremost we are all legends,
thanks and great work, we all love pocket legends.

I hope that makes sense, cuz English isn't my first, not even second language, lol.

Flinging arrows with my bird-
Life deferred.
Casting spells with my mage-
Life can write its own page.
Summoning zombies with my bear-
Life passing me by and I don't even care.
Fight or flight? Pot up and we will play through the night.
Above is my confession. . .Pocket Legends is my obsession :)

P.s. Samhayne and Cinco Loco the insane. . .Without you life is unbearably mundane ;)

Here's an example left by our very poetic AoA member Chickenrunnn

<3 Just for that wonderful lovely lil' word, I'll make a beautiful poem for you :)!!




For Delphina (or contest I don't know yet :) )

Delphina,
The first time I saw ya,

I got impressed by your beautifulness,
Shining all over the PL Alterra World,
That must have came from God bless,
Who reigns on the two Worlds.

Your green colored name,
Was fitting perfectly with your eyes,
Reminding me the sun rays,
When I was lost, looking for an aim.

You showed the way,
Illimunated my day,
Appeared like a beaming queen,
Piercing my skin,

To my heart.
Delphina, I love ya. :love_heart:





77 words :)

I may make another for contest, but this one seems to be good <3 ^^ xD

Cya everyone :) I may edit for one more poem ^^

XD

What I was trying to say was that the poetry isn't about the rhyming. The rhyming stipulation is, I believe, so people have a format to base their work off of. Creativity rules the day!

I once longed for the Elite Marlin Sword
Shmelite shmarlin shmord
I've found a new fancy
Its name is the Elite Sea Blaster
While its price is heavy
I can kill my friends faster

I pvp for all the glee...
Nonetheless, everybody goes after me...
Maybe it was the crazy rushers...
Or maybe even the so called dream crushers...

I told this as I sighed...
For now, all I can say is I tried...
To all the "noobs" and "pros" out there...
Noodle really does care...

So Noodle dreamt a dream...
A day where everybody may seem...
The amiable pvpers he dreamt of...
For now, I think he's said enough...

I love pvping :)

Entertaining is my name
rushing noobs is my game
all they do is die
and at times, they cry
to be honest, i don't really care
cuz to some i'm considered bes behr
some may say that i'm quite conceited
but honestly, i'm still undefeated
most might consider me a compulsive liar
all them people are just compulsive criers
writing poems is what i do
don't talk crap or I will hunt you

and it was easy

You were pretty easy as a custom bird though :3

pocket legends best game ever,
once was a powerful bear named YANEZAT,
he was a nob before he was lvl 70,

Through the forums I swam,
Till I met the Pocket Poem Slam,
I dropped my cup of chrysanthemum,
When I saw the reward of sixty platinum,
For months I've been dreaming,
Of platinum I've been longing,
So STS do you agree,
To share some platinum with me?

:wink:
I'm quite new here to the forums hope that will make a good one:).

There once was a guild: "Yiches B*ches"
'Twas owned by a bear who had riches
When samhayne came along
He found the name to be wrong
Now my guildmates are sandwiches.

Now I hold no deep grudge
For the fair and just judge
For I know what Sam's in-game niche is
I dont shake my fist at the gods
Or curse my own odds
I just have sit team all the sn****es.

true, poems do not have to rhyme, they only have to be musical. but poem contests have always had extraneous requirements, often requiring rhyme. besides, it's a good exercise to give yourself limits sometimes.

maybe i will get an idea. it's too bad you don't allow sonnets, which take 14 lines. i love sonnets :)

Lol :)

Sonnet form is kinda complicated.. The 2 last lines should be teaching something to the reader.. xD
Metaphors, Inplicit images, irony and critical stresses are welcomed xD..

Since I'm only french, using rich and elevated style is really complicated xD I did my best :)..

Good Luck everyone ^^^^^!! :banana:

I sought to play a simple game
With bear or bird or elf,
but taken was my favorite name,
the mirror of my self.

I added X's as a test
but that was taken, too.
I struggled nobly at this quest
until I turned deep blue.

At last I chose to give it up.
I did not like this sport.
So you may call me Pugtasnup
or Pug, or Snup for short.

You're not a real good bear... Maybe low level, but not a legitimate all around bear :P

Warriors go forward from guided halls
Excising greatness from the from the soul of all
Through the shadows of deaths and the voids call.
Creatures of the night and a castles will
fall.
A Mage an Archer and a Warrior stand tall.
Onward to fight the battle goes on........ more shadows!!
Break armor!!
Resurrect!!!
and taunt!!!
the smoke clears... From avian wings... a new story is born
Our Legends stand and Mynas falls....

"Rap diss against Flawless"


Capture the flag, it's free for all...flawless round
I'll strip you off your fame..I need none of it
You can have it back, it's your pain
You have no plan in my path
Believe it or not...
You scammed the support of the game twice
Your own unity will spit you out..when the time comes
When you insult one of your own cats
Driven by the fame, that has struck you blind
One or the other outcome..
You're victimized by the master mind
You couldn't win if you tried
Keep your head under tails of the pros
That have put you down until you logged out
Until you quit but came back for more, like a hungry dog

Keep playing games, buy another platinum pack
It's your own revelation, we're come back at ya
Flag game ain't about what you posses or the stats u've got
Talk sh*t and it and death will come as if plague has struck
Quiting is the only you choice you've have got right now.


gg

gimme the plat now.

There was a bear called bamsebrum
He ate and drink
Mostly rum
He couldnt run
Because he was slow
One day he met a crow
He had a bow
The bear had no
And now the bear have a dream
To become a legend and buy a bow and some cream
