August Word Of The Month Contest

allanegory:

I enjoyed the June WOTMC and since I missed to set one up for July, I’ll try again for August. Share this post amongst your friends. Remember, the more participants, the higher the bragging rights! ;)

Deadline for entries is July 26th, contest will start on 1st of August.

RULES:

1) Each participant sends me a word. Please use my ask and mention #wotmc0814 (for August 2014) in your message.

2) I randomly distribute the words amongst all participants. 

3) Every participant has one month to write as many poems as possible tagged #wordofthemonthcontest. Only text posts with the word contained in the body (not only the title) count towards your score.

4) The participant whose word has the highest accumulated notes (sum of notes of all poems which include the word) wins.

5) You are allowed to promote your poem anyway you see fit, EXCEPT reblogging it yourself (that would increase the note count). Making a new post with a link to the poem and maybe a few lines is fine though.

6 entries already! Keep sharing!

4 more days to enter! Please share!

Another day has passed by… In hindsight, what did I do today? Wonder about whether my one story - everyone has one big story he would like to tell, right? - would suit the stage. Also, planning out props and scenery. Just in case. It will probably never happen.

Secret Guardian

allanegory:

As heaven’s watchman dies I clothe myself
In garments not from ordinary thread
They give me strength and they help me in stealth
Among the crowd to move with hooded head.

And as a shadow shielded by the night,
As secret guardian I stalk empty streets
For I work in the dark to serve the light
In evil hearts I plant most fearsome seeds.

And as below ‘gainst beggars raise his fists
A noble guard I see, in quick descend
I’m flying from the roof and flick my wrists
Extending blades which unjust fight then end.

Money corrupts and I must limit hence
Those that from power drunk lost common sense.

For those wondering where I’ve been lately…

For those wondering where I’ve been lately…

“And every single drop of blood I bleed
Is fueling only now my quest for life
And every scar is but a map to lead
Me to the treasure for which I now strife.”

我很高兴见到你

i am happy to have met you

我很高兴认识你

i am happy to have known you

但最后, 没有你我更快乐。

but in the end, i am happier without you.

—   再见 (goodbye)

I just joined HITRECORD. Check out my profile and hit me up for some collaboration!

Sounds interesting

old news… been there a while. I had even reposted submit options.

sometimes it’s not what’s said but WHO says… and yea… I got them sour grapes all up in my mouth.

Don’t worry, it’s much less about who says it but when you say it. I just happened to appear on someone’s dash at the right moment; your posts aren’t any less meaningful.

What’s your account on HITRECORD?
