Read jealousy Poems Online



This is Poetry Diva. I know when I am being cheated. Between first and fifth place my poems define. If not, I have not follow the syllable count. However, in rhyme, couplet, free verse, etcetera, I am never an underdog. Therefore, why do I enter contests when I know it favoritism on the Soup y’all? Well, a true Poet or Poetess, as prior stated, never lose. Welcome to the SOUP! _____________________| PENNED ON AUGUST 27, 2014!

    Dear Verlena, I read this poem previously and I just love the honesty you express. The favoritism seems most rampant among those who hold contests and pretty much just say, "Send me any old thing." Friends are rewarded. Not right and I agree with everything you've said. Love, Carolyn

    Dear Verlena, Often there is favoritism shown in the contests. I try not to take them too seriously - just for fun and the love of writing. A strong message in your great poem! Love, Carolyn

    Sometimes when I just write and let it flow from whatever is in there the work comes out beautiful..It is very hard to write a poem that has meter, rhyme and needs to flow as well but some can turn those out ...Thanks for the visits to my page..I appreciate the time spent there..I am doing a contest where I want a Triolet with at least one Zeugma and if it is not a Triolet then it gets eliminated in round one..Sara

    We are the Soup so I don't knock it.. Everybody is looking for something. You either play to the sponsor's taste or just do the contest and see what happens.

    Ah, Verlena, as all artist learn "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder". The theme of a poetry workshop I conduct is "DON'T FIGHT IT - WRITE IT!!" Let those who will read and ponder your work.
