The Poetry Contest was an enormous success and I highly enjoyed reading these wonderful submissions! The winners have already been announced, but I could not simply leave these poems to remain in the comment section.
If you’ve followed me for awhile now, you’ve probably noticed I am huge on community! So I’m sharing these poems for several reasons: one reason is for my followers to get to know and follow one another!
While these next poems did not win, they were within my top considerations! (Please note, this is not an order of the next winners [i.e. 3rd, 4th, 5th places] many of these submissions were tied in points)
***I intend on doing three more posts with some other excellent poems! If I do not share your poems, please do not feel bad, it does not mean I did not enjoy them! There were many excellent poems, but I had to narrow it down. Thank you for participating!

Finding its way to crawl onto my skin
And the thin fibers resting on my body
Prick upwards, alert and expecting anguish. . .” (Read More Here!)
