"Be like the bird who, pausing in her flight awhile on boughs too slight, feels them give way beneath her, and yet sings, knowing she hath wings."
- Victor Hugo

"Neither a lofty degree of intelligence nor imagination nor both together go to the making of genius. Love, love, love, that is the soul of genius."
-Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

:wave: I challenged you all to write something beautiful with all the negativity built up inside of you, and the results were amazing! I was pleasantly surprised by all of the entries and how each writer took their own take on the prompt. But, I had to choose only a few of them to be winners.

1st Place: Aerode 

 
This poem is full of metaphors, creative ideas, and an abstract style that is completely captivating. Each stanza gorgeously transitions into another, and it all links together to create a story of love, pain, and yearning. I have no words to describe how it speaks to me. :heart:

2nd Place: shehrozeameen

Mirth in Solemn ReminiscenceThis dear heart knows no boundaries, my love -
Let us pray that the night will be our guide,
a solace I sought, granted, from above.
Let nothing stop us – spread your wings, my dove,
and follow the gentle wind breathing its stride;
this dear heart knows no boundaries, my love.
A loud tempest strikes! Wraps in a cold glove
a chance for ascension, spread far and wide:
A solace I sought, granted, from above.
Therein, you found, the mirth you had dreamt of;
a smile on your face – purity deified –
This dear heart knows no boundaries, my love.
Thus must I leave now; a sadness I shove
aside, for this void is where I reside
this dear heart knows no boundaries, my love.
I plant the rose on your grave, made thereof
from our dreams together, for you I cried:
“this dear heart knows no boundaries, my love -
a solace I sought, granted, from above.”

This piece has a much more classical feel to it than most poetry today, and in that way it is unique in expressing common emotions that everyone can relate to. Therefore, I feel that it is a timeless piece that can be interpreted both in modern times and the way back to Shakespeare's time. Each line is full of purpose and emotion that, in all, creates something unforgettable. :heart:

3rd Place: ReconditeDevices

Let Me Absorb Your RageWho but I will feel your wrath?
I'm all you've got, its simple math.
Who but I can absorb your rage,
when gesture and tone belie your age?
With piercing scream and woeful wail,
true old classics when young words fail.
Frustration waiting to be freed and spent,
my gorgeous volcano, trying to vent.
Pink and purple anger now run its course.
No my darling, you can not have a horse.
Let me dry your tears, do you need to wee?
Would you like a juice box with morning tea?

This approach to the prompt was very sarcastic, and that's probably why I enjoyed reading it so much. The idea was very well executed, and the word choice intrigues me more each time I read it. :heart:

Honorable Mention: Diluculi

59. No Way OutImagine your artistic mind is a house, but instead of rooms the door you find can lead you into entire worlds of your own. Imagination, creativity and motivation used to buzz around entire floors, filling the house with life, darting from one place to another while playing catch. Ideas just to come and go, sometimes staying for hours, sometimes just walking by.
But this time, something is off. It's hard to realise at first, but the usually ever presents sounds have died down, replaced by an increasing, eerie silence. No idea is showing up and all the rooms are deserted. Imagination and Creativity are nowhere to be found, no matter how often you call out for them. There is only silence. Some of the rooms are locked and the worlds behind those which aren't, are also empty and silenced. All the beings who used to inhabit them are either gone or lying motionless on the ground. Slowly the colours fade away, until only grey shades are left behind.
In search for a reason, for a cause, or simp


This piece of prose takes you on a very interesting emotional journey that includes imagery and metaphoric messages that reminds you of being stuck in a nightmare with no way out. The journey was very enjoyable for me. :heart:
