Valentine's Competition

#1

Post by Rakuen Growlithe »

It's time for a new competition, this time based around Valentine's Day! That includes cupid, love, romance and all that sappy stuff. This is not only for couples and hopeless romantics. If you are feeling SAD then you can also post something for Singles Awareness Day. Just because you don't have a partner doesn't mean you need one. Here's an opportunity to share those feelings.

The competition is open for art, poetry and short stories. Written works should be fewer than 1000 words. All submissions must be PG-13.

Post your submission in this thread to enter. There is a maximum of 3 entries per person and a minimum of 3 people before voting can proceed. Entries will remain open until at least the end of 7 February. From 8 February to the end of 14 February, voting will remain open for all registered forum members. After that, we will announce the new Valentine's Contest winner.

Have fun!

I'll make a submission.

Butterflies.

Butterflies in a glass orb.
Dancing in their graces,
flitting around.
Circling,
gliding.
Fluttering.

A beating heart.

Companions, two in tandem.
Never close, never far.
Meant to want to be where they are.

Closed, surrounded,
in their transparent cage.
Watched,
Onlookers gazing,
At the dancing, beating wings.
Exit light, enter night. My fluffy underbelly is the sky.

We're about half way until the original deadline. So far we've got one poem thanks to TheOldWolf. Surely someone will challenge him? Doesn't anyone want to take the Arena Champion title from Kai?

Flushing down the crimson valley,
a tidal wave - moving fast,
rushing through my soul's alley -
a curse that you have cast

for the thought of your love moves me,
holding you tight - it shatters foundations.
Our warm winter cuddles I want to be,
your face - my infatuations.

But these waves never stop coming down,
these passions - their tortures never end.

Is this then love -
calling your name in the winter wind?
Is this then love -
longing for your warm embrace?

From deep within the ocean blue,
I see your face - a starry hue
Where one movement ends
The next one begins

Here's another poem:


From oceans deep, I see your face -
a starry sky, an empty place.
Beneath leagues of icy water plains,
I call for you - my soul's refrains.

When I'd hold you tight in a warm embrace -
would it be as wonderful as I think it to be?
Your fluffy yeen sneaking up from behind,
arms sliding around your waste, beautifully outlined -
would this loving surprise, a fursuit snug,
be as lovely as it seems to be?

Can't we just cuddle on our couch,
your chosen film buzzing through the night?
My whispers warm as we cozily slouch -
our priceless love, having taken flight.

My call to your unanswered face -
a fluttering echo in this sunken place.
Where one movement ends
The next one begins

Sorry, I mistyped. She said she didn't intend it to be one. It was just a joke.
