Enter Quibblo Writing Contest #17

This question has been asked a lot over the last week, so I thought it would be fun to turn it into a creative writing contest (with emphasis on “creative”):

What is the history of Quibblo? Who started it? When and why?

The point of this exercise is not to do actual research but to create a fun story and a good read. Now tell us about Quibblo!

Give it an interesting title (don’t include “Quibblo’s Contest,” “QC,” or similar), and remember to:

  • Check spelling and grammar
  • Tag it with WC17
  • Share it with all your friends, both on and off Quibblo

Please allow enough time to complete your writing. On April 30, we’ll select three winners to showcase on the Quibblo home page. Ready? Go!

Deadline: 11:59 pm (EST), Sunday, April 28, 2013.

Writing Contest #16 Winners (see topic)

Take a look at these worthy excerpts from all the poetry entries.

See this post for the details on how winners are selected.

April 10th, 2013 | No Comments »

It was great to see so many wonderful poetry entries for Writing Contest #16.

Though it might disappoint some participants, I decided not to select three winners for this one. Instead, I chose a few exceptional lines from each of the poems and highlighted them below. To see another excerpt, click “Show another.” Enjoy!

 

 

Take my heart and take my hand.
Together, now and forever, we’ll stand.
Once we walk through that open door,
Mister Misfit will be no more.

TayleeBug, from Mister Misfit

I can give no more, I have given all I can.
But still I will listen as my heart jumps with the rhythm and dances with the lyrics.
I will still be listening when I draw my last breath, my last beat I will give to it.
And let it take me away to be with it forever.

Salocin, from Music

Lazing away
Sunny days
Summer has no sky of gray

With blowing leaves,
And colorful trees,
After Fall comes winter freeze

Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall
It doesn’t matter;
I love them all

UnknownMix, from Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall

When you’re alone
Do you worry ’bout me?
Or do all those memories
Just get up and flee?
Is there a hole in your heart
Where I once was?
Or do you count me
As one of your life’s flaws?

Tortured_Dreams, from Please

I look in the mirror and all that I see,
is the reflection of a girl who I know is not me.
Her eyes are quite brown,
her hair quite long,
but she sings the lyrics of the saddest song.

XxAll_You_Need_Is_LovexX, from I Look in the Mirror…

Where no verbal corruption
Will destroy the beauty of the simplicity
The small things
The details on the wings of a butterfly
The spirals on the clouds
The petals of a wilting rose

I dream of Paradise

DaringtoDream, from I dream of Paradise

With you, I think I lost the ability to love,
You took my heart with you on your trip to somewhere up above.

TroyofArc, from Sweet Dreams of a Lost Love

I’d follow my heart,
If I could.
But how do I know
Where it’s taking me?
I will have have to decide.
Without any guide,
Where it is I am to go.

Dreams_Come_True, from Which way

If I could cry a rainbow,
as soon as the sun came in
I’d cry away all my tears
then be happy again.

pieisme3, from If I could cry..

Glorfindel Elf-prince offered help to the travelers
But the Black Riders were blocking them still
A race for the fate of the world had begun
Between the blade’s power and Frodo’s fading will.

HP_imanerd_LOTR, from The Ballad of the One Ring

The smell of your insults
Stench my hair
They follow me like tired dogs.

My body cries for you to save me,
Never ceasing ’til it knows you’re gone.
This tension remains between us
built upon one night gone wrong.

indianBarbie, from ‘Til

But to my friends I am lying
About resisting the urge to fall
Even though it feels like I am flying
My reality has slowed down to a crawl

Every_tear_a_waterfall, from Saying Goodbye to an Angel

I’ve tried and tried,
to no avail
One more try
means one more fail

pieisme3, from Cutting: a poem

The darkness calls
Light calls and brings a choice
Which shall I do?

Will fight the dark
and be the light

Or shall be the dark
and fight the light

NeferetChosen, from Light

Quiet now, silent now,
Red stained blankets,
Hard hung ropes,
Shadows lost within your mind,
Is there something you have to tell?

Paper_Wings, from 10 Characters Remaining

Even the silence can seem loud right here,
Out of this desperate heart with you so near.

Evenings spent longing to see your face,
Living and loving completely out of grace…

Chaun1, from Love’s Melody

I sit here stationary, lonely I weep
Oh why must my memories be so steep?
They haunt me and taunt me
For I have been hurt
For I have been crumpled and thrown in the dirt

Shattered_Memories, from Memories

I will stand by you
through the dark and the light
through the up and the down
it’s all part of life

Ginger_werewolf_chick, from Look up my dear

I thought i could do it once you left,
It seems i was mistaken.
Granted i should have seen it coming,
But still it left me shaken.

DramaLlama, from It is too late.

And I wonder
Is this where
I’m supposed to be
I ponder
And think
What if
This life isn’t for me

shadowming1998, from Mermaid

You’re my best friend
In the whole wide world
And I’m sorry
That it had to end

SonOfHades12, from You’re my best friend

Though dust am I, and dust I’ll become,
My soul will forever remain as one.
When trumpet will sound, I’ll give a cry
Of merriment and a consented sigh.

7eldaChick, from Dust

The end is near.
My fate is sealed.
Breath fading.
My Spirit is ready to part with my body.
I’m withering away
I shall breathe no more as I
pass on
(Departing soon)
Drifting into eternity.

Twishadowhunter, from Eternity

The world is dark,
It will always be.
Why not make our own light,
Just you and me?

A fire fed from kindness,
From love, from joy?
Why not let the others see?

GoodbyeIsASecondChance, from Light The World On Fire

How could you treat me like this?
Don’t you see..? She’s lying!
Why don’t you believe in me?
On the inside I’m crying!

RachiMarie, from You Broke My Heart

I feel the people start to leave
The night is over and they silently grieve
But we’re still stuck together like glue
I lean in and whisper

&I love you too.&

AllFallDown, from Dance Forever

All I have been doing in this pouring rain,
Is trying to catch his love train

Chel123, from Love Train

My secret weapon is my mind,
The only thing they can’t find,
If I don’t believe in them,
They crumble down to the stem.

Zara_Aurealis, from The Monsters

My little brother with his big blue eyes,
That absolutely hurt me every time he cries.
He’s sweet and kind with a kick of sour.
But being his sister is better than ANY super power.

Fanghoul, from My Little Brother

We do not wish to be sung of in songs of old
Or to be spoken of in tales retold

Chronicler12, from Song of Heros

Fallen leaves, blown
by the whispering of the wind,
add to the solitude, making a couple.
Next comes the pine needles,
released from the many years of clinging to
an old tree.
Add to the puddle and the leaves, making a threesome.

ShutUpAndKissMe, from Late Winter Puddle

But now I’m coming clean
I’m not afraid of what you’ll say
I’ll understand no matter what
I’ll be your friend either way

XiaoMeiHonda, from You are Special to Me

Skin pale and scarred from her feet to her ears
Light vulnerable eyes, constantly leaking tears
Never has a real smile
Come from her in quite a while
The once vibrant and happy girl
Has been overcome by this cruel, cruel world

runawaybaby01, from The Victim

Let your unique spirit fly! On with the authors! ON!
Go, poets, join forces! Poe and Frost be your gods
And your own bright flame be your battlecry.
Let me see that, we may overcome odds of silence.

The_7th_Avenger, from Poetry Taken To Heart

I wish to be free
Not a prisoner of romance
Not someone who would kill herself
After just one little dance.

I want to be myself
Not some character from a book
Who fell in love
From just one look.

Music_Maker, from Just like Juliette

Mirrors and walls.
Your reflection of the obstacles,
You took down but never really broke.
I’m still standing, I was one of those.

girlcalledkill, from All But Me

A blue balloon,
floats above his grave,
he watches from the moon,
the boy who was brave.

Trose777, from The Blue Balloon: A Poem

Life as a dream
Hazy, unpredictable
Surprising every step

breatheinxbreatheout, from Life as a Dream

I’m slowly sinking out of sight,
I’ve done no deeds for good, not one,
I’m being blinded by a light.

pigfarts_yumyumyum, from Blinding Light

As I walk down the street, I feel that spring is in the air
Oak trees with buds blooming
Spring time flowers sprouting to the sky
I stop and think
Why can’t I be like spring time
Why can’t I bloom like a flower
When will the sun shine on me

Ashfoot, from My Song

Memories flipping by,
Snow fall begins to dry.
Cannot wait till next July

I_love_Jace_Wayland8D, from Mental Dinosaur

That feeling of happiness then vanished
Instead, a void begins to grow in the madness.
All other emotion had thus been banished
All but one, the one called Sadness.

The_Female_Barton, from Love: the truth

Be careful whose smiles you take.
Be careful about the smiles you make.

the_key_creation, from A Smile

Yet the Heart makes us who we are,
It thumps when our love is near,
It heals every open scar.

AJPJ, from The Heart

Hush little baby, it’s time to sleep,
Your papa’s tired, your mama weeps.
Your smiling face no longer keeps,
The scars left, jagged and deep.

BuddyJayLucky, from Little Baby

Formal church services and too tight clothing,
Girls that stand like they’re always posing,

DaxiTaxi, from Landenberg’s Sunday Brunches

Magenta flowers blossoming
Roses opening wide
Full of light and color
Why can’t you be one of them?
Why are you so shy?

Friendship_Is_Awesome, from Blossom

Are you happy now?
After all the pain and suffering you caused for me
I thought you were different
How could I have been so foolish

kbaby1600, from I will ALWAYS love you

You’re the best friend a guy could ask for
And I’m sad our friendship had to end
It just couldn’t mend
As much as I wanted the good times again

SonOfHades12, from My poem for my bfitww.

Time changes, feelings change.
But I can promise you this.
My life is changing because of you,
I am changing because of you.

I_Love_My_Boyfriend, from My Life Story – But Through A Poem

He hurts me
He probably knows he does it
But he’s a bully and he doesn’t care
He doesn’t have the right to judge, coz he’s not perfect himself

dontaskifimgoth, from The Bully

The night sets.
The night starts.
The night gets
many hearts.

XxFuneralDinerxX, from Death in the Night

No one seems to ask “am I okay?”
Good. I’m fine. For you, I won’t whine
Happiness is close
It’s all just waiting in time.

Depression, from Fate

These filthy burning hearts on summer nights
We haven’t got music or the esteem
The night now means nothing
Teenage hot tempered drama queen

DaxiTaxi, from Thank You, Goodbye

Great burnitin tails! Awake the Wyth,
Cease the deribonum of the lote kazoo,
Ficspard to the fing and hing of derith!
Gilu’s awake and rightly wislycalsh, this is true!

MoonSeeker, from Entatoo and Gilu

Every day you make me swear not to tell
That you’ve been making my life
A living hell
But I stay strong

beautyqueen419, from I stay strong

I feel colors when I hear a song.
I smell scents as I hear a song.
I feel.
I understand.
Words, all around.

the_key_creation, from This is Me

You gave me the world
For little in return.
But when asked to stay
I left you to burn.

Mage_of_Rage, from In the Garden

Spinning, twirling.
Leaping, dancing.
The silver ring my dead friend bought me
on my right hand, glistening in the sun.

houseofnight12, from Poems

Lying to self.
Telling myself I’m good when I’m not.
A pretentious, narcissistic, idiot jerk.
That is the truth.
And I hate it.

Lyssapire, from Alive. Free. Healthy. Well.

But if you looked a little further
Not in my features but in my style
In the way I walk
In the way I talk
You would find
A beautiful girl

Secondo_ , from A Beautiful Girl

All the time I lock myself in my head;
Writing is my getaway car;
The only thing is I never get ahead;
Of the things that hurt me, that make me feel trapped in a jar;

Rathina_Aurealis, from My life is a lie

Dancing with the dead,
Walking with the lost,
Singing for the angels,
And praying for the devil,
What are you looking for?
What are you here for? (What are you here for?!)

Paper_Wings , from Apocalypse
