    Romance is hard, poetry is harder - VALENTINE'S DAY COMPETITION

    COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED





    It's February, and that means Valentine's Day is in just a few weeks. To celebrate, WF is holding a small competition over on our Facebook and Twitter pages. The competition is simple. Head on over to your choice of social media time-burning website and either write on our Facebook wall or tweet at us (@WritingForums) your best four-line 'roses are red' poem. Be romantic or funny or cynical or creepy or whatever you like. So long as it's four lines long and begins with the word 'Roses' the entry will be valid.

    The day after Valentine's Day, when we're all nursing mild contempt toward fake occasions that are just excuses to get consumers to buy things and who even cares about Valentine's Day anyway!? The day after Valentine's Day, the best poems will be chosen and the winners will each receive 1 month subscription to the forum!

    Because who needs a VD date when you have a heart-melting forum like this one. Nawww. That was sweet.

    Roses are red
    I'm spying on you
    I'm the shadow on your wall
    My love is true
    Je suis Charlie.

    Roses are red
    You threw your shoe
    I just laughed harder
    Your face was so red

    Violets are blue
    Bananas are yellow
    But my dog has fleas

    Roses cause dread,
    Violets do too,
    I'm allergic to pretty things,
    And just look at... at- achoo!
    Remember kids: Drink vodka, play Dotka!

    Roses are turquoise,
    Violets are tan,
    I slip away fast boys,
    Try and love me if you can.




    Brief question though, we can put the poem here as well as the social media correct? Just want to make sure because I already did but I don't know if I need to specify who I am on the social media. Or is this considered my proof to match for the social media aspect of the contest?

    Roses are red,
    Violets are blue,
    Our love is like a poem
    Which doesn't work.

    That one isn't actually mine, but it's the best I've ever heard.
    Sleep is for the weak, or sleep is for a week.

    You can post it here as well if you like. Either way I was going to be contacting people and asking them for their forum screen names once winners were chosen.

    Roses are red
    I am blue
    the worst mistake I've made
    was when I said "I do"
    She lost herself in the trees,
    among the ever-changing leaves.
    She wept beneath the wild sky
    as stars told stories of ancient times.
    The flowers grew toward her light,
    the river called her name at night.
    She could not live an ordinary life,
    with the mysteries of the universe
    hidden in her eyes....
    Author: Christy Ann Martine

    Death leaves a heartache no one can heal,
    love leaves a memory no one can steal....
