I would enter, but i am not use to Theme's like that. My poem would end up dark and edgy.

That's alright, the theme is open to interpretation. :nod: For example, it could be about how someone lost what was best in them.

Would it be all right if I stretched the meaning out to the Best and Worst Sides of One? I have a poem I'd like to enter in that fits that perfectly, but I don't know if that would be acceptable... Anyways, thanks so much for reading my request! :)

That would be perfectly acceptable! :nod: You are encouraged to interpret the theme as creatively as you wish.

So, I have a question.
Would a short story written in prose, poetically written of course, still count, or not?
Reply
:icondrmeh:
DrMeh Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2013
Hello,

I'm afraid we won't count that, because this contest is for poetry in form and function. You could try to transform the story into a poem, which would be acceptable. :)
