“Suppressed!”: Honorable Write [1]

Mental Interpretation to My Body

written by Kaysina Melody

My skin laced like ribbon with secrets
embraces the haunted house of a rib cage and a tight rope spine;
a heart that pumps oil rather than blood,
and lungs that have never been permitted to exhale toxins
leaving me to believe I have no room for healing or light.
To my amusement,
light does not supplement or define
a suitable synonym for healing,
just the inability to experience insight
into my own choices.
So as my heart beats loudly,
my rib cage turns into a xylophone of horrors
crying out in haunted pleas for solace.
Trespassers have been warned at my rusted gates
to never be fooled by the sun rays that pass through my transparent
Remember, the light blinds those who wish to see a vivid picture.
As time flies,
my bones begin to deteriorate into coarse sand.
The same sand that negotiates time tables and fate
to those on the edge of their own destiny.
My facade has lowered, not due to my own will,
yet somehow I find peace in its own silver lining.
As the last haunting melody chimes through the wind,
I am reduced to nothing but a tiny seed,
just in time for the next soul to be swept away
in their own parallel universe.

“Suppressed!”: Honorable Write [2]


written by Luna Poetria

My self flagellated psyche
Lies abandoned in its cage.
The wounds are gaping fiercely
And the blood runs hot with rage.
Salted tears flow freely
Like a never ending rain.
They sizzle as they hit my skin.
I’ve no room left for pain.
A cool wind whispers softly.
It implores me to forgive.
It fans the flames of rage, which scream out
The cage door flings wide open
And my damaged mind takes flight.
No longer trapped in darkness,
With an appetite for fight.
Do you want to watch me
As I make my old world burn?
Be wary, don’t get in my way.
Next time may be your turn.

I have been trying to sleep but for some reason, I just can’t. So I try to finish commenting on all the remaining entries for this All Poetry contest.

Also, I manage to at last choose the 5 finalist. I would like to congratulate all the winners for this contest!


Thank you for all the wonderful submissions I’ve received. It’s been a difficult decision as I’ve received a lot of great writes. I’ve based my decisions on how much their poems touch me. It may not be the same for everybody but the list above is the official list of winners.

Hoping for your patience in waiting for the judging to be completed. I have already selected some pieces which stand out for me emotionally but I am yet to eliminate some from the selection to arrive at the 5 finalists.
