Caitlin’s Winning Poem:

Goodbye

All I see when I look in your eyes
Is the shadow of my needs and desires
Only emptiness now
Burned out fires.
There once was a love
As true as any could be
But it has passed
Now you don’t need me.
Such a shame and a waste
So many years
We shared it all
All our dreams and fears.
Life destroyed us
Of that I have no doubt
Boredom settled in
And now you want out.
So where do we go from here
And what do we do
How to end this?
I still love you.


Spiritwolf’s Poem:

Sleepless

I can not sleep most nights
so I watch your figure
bathed in shimmering moonlight
your hair seems to glow
Soft shadows cast themselves about your face
This night you are dreaming again
I trace the line of your jaw
with a gentle touch
as not to wake you,
but to make sure you are real
to become certain that I am not dreaming
you sleeping by my side
Your dream seems to have ended;
your breathing has returned to normal
and so I close my eyes to sleep.
