    Lightbulb Weekly Writing Contest 80

    On Thursday a topic will be chosen and posted by the previous weeks winner. Then everyone who wants to enter will post their piece in the thread before 12:00 PM (-8:00 GMT) Thursday. So that is Wednesday night/early Thursday Morning. Then the previous winner will judge all the pieces and pick the new winner and post it in the entry thread sometime on Thursday (try and do it as early as you can). The weeks winner will then pick the topic and make a new thread and it starts all over again. Remember this is your chance to shine!!!


    1. All forms of writing are welcome, whether it be poetry, short stories, essays, fan fiction, or whatever.
    2. All entries must be under 500 words
    3. All entries will be rated no higher than R this will be at the mods discretion. All entries rated over PG-13 must be under spoiler tags with a warning!
    4. The week's judge's decision is final and absolute. There no whining or complaining about another piece being better or the judge not being able to judge. On a flip note lets try and keep it as fair and impartial as possible.
    5. Critique will be allowed in another thread, but must remain constructive. Just saying 'your piece sucks' is not allowed and will be dealt with accordingly. Everyone will be trying their best so lets not try to hurt feelings. On the flip side learn to take criticism it will help you become a better writer.
    6. Let's have fun with it. This will give you a chance to read others people's writing and let others read yours.
    7. A default judge will pick a new winner and topic if the week's judge goes MIA.
    8. If for some reason you can't fulfill your duties. Please PM Sarah so that she will be able to take appropriate action so the contest doesn't suffer delays.
    9. Have fun!!!

    This week's topic
    : An anonymous Love Letter ie secret admirer (think of it like a Valentine's Day practice session or if you don't have someone special use your overactive imagination =D )

    What did you take from me?

    Before you, I live my life with my rules intact.
    Never with regret, nor with remorse, in fact

    Lazily and sluggishly I float through life with no ambition
    Honor that more than friends or family tradition

    My mouth went uncheck, my actions eccentric
    Memories fade, left me blank

    Then you came, and then I fear
    Because at that moment, something inside of me disappear

    Just your presence, made me warm
    Even during a frigid snowstorm

    People before you disappear and I care not
    Events before you happen and I care not
    My life could have ended before you and I care not
    Now, my life does not connect, it goes around the dots

    But now you left, life do not seem right
    Life like normal, I try as I might
    It has become darker than Alaskan night

    Once again, I ask you to set me free
    Please, tell me what did you take from me?
    Episode 22 - What is 19% of Avogadro's Constant?

    This is a slightly dated episode, but I donít think that is the point. We had what some might call a script for this one and in the ended up becoming Whoís Line is It Anyway? And I was Drew Carey. We cover things including current shows, the fandomís stupidity and seriously everything else but what we were suppose to talk about.

    Graze Across the Room

    The gaze across the room.
    Filled with the intent of sin.
    Sinfully curious about the other,
    Curiously sinful likings.

    An intimate first contact.
    Then a second,
    Hopefully a third.
    Back and forth between the two pairs.

    It is a moment filled with lustful intensity,
    Yet it is a moment more complex than many.
    Receiving a soulís warmth in an instant.
    Seemingly impossible with its depressing brevity.
    All that is important grasped in all but a nervous exchange.

    Maybe it is the eyes that capture the heart,
    The eyes that doth give it away.

    Time's up =)

    First off Ashen - the general feel of the poem was very intriguing, the emotions you described were paired with great descriptions. You ended with a question which tied everything together. As for the form, the layout was nicely done. Grammatically though it still needed some tweaking, just look out for tenses.

    June Bear - the first thing that caught my attention was the last line
    The eyes that doth give it away.
    ^ loved it
    As for the flow of it, it was good, the punctuation, to me, kind of threw it off though. I really liked how you described that initial contact, just focusing on the eye contact.

    Thank you both for your entries
    Congratulations Ashen
