I wrote the perfect poem, and I double-checked each line The imagery was stunning, the picture painted was divine My face broke into a smile with the glowing comments I received But when I saw the ‘winner’s list’ I found my eyes were deceived There was a massive void where my name should have been How could the premiere contest sponsor be so bloody mean! Contest You Broke my Heart Sponsored by Nicola Byrne 02~11~17

Catching up on poetry reading... this is a gem. And I know the feeling all too well. But the fun's in the writing, right?

LOL John its rather tongue in cheek as I rarely enter the premiere contests and there are so many disappointed people who try hard and are seen to fail but of course its all down to the sponsor's :-( hugs Jan xx

Well you certainly went for it. I think this is an amazing write. It is unbelievable how great your writing is these days. You knock me out of my chair...blow my socks off. (I double checked my spelling on that last line. Not a good time for a typo) I know you wrote this tongue and cheek but it is so well executed. Just a pleasure to read. A Fav!

Very expressive and emotive work..We have all been disappointed at times when we felt that our poem should have at least placed or placed higher..Sara

I rarely enter the premiere contests as they have so few winners and there are many poems I think are worthy of a place. :-) hugs Jan xx

I rarely enter the premiere contests so its a bit of a tongue in cheek poem I just hope Nicola has a good sense of humour:-) hugs Jan x

It happens....Some good ones don't make it and some you weren't so pleased about shine... Sometimes it's not about your write could be the competition or taste of the judge.

I saw one person who must have 2 accounts post the same poem one after the other ... I saw someone had commented on both poems but not even picked up they were the same ... when I contacted the 'writer' they could offer no explanation as to how the same poem could be written by 2 people in different parts of the world lol!:-( hugs jan xx

Oh I know for a fact some are merely paying lip service and cutting and pasting the same comment and don't really read a poem lol. It's a bit of a tongue in cheek poem - i did start another one but it didn't make sense so I ditched it and went for humour:-) hugs Jan xx
Date: 2/11/2017 5:16:00 AM
Wonderful ... Had we not accepted as fun, may be we would have stopped responding to contests ... a nice blend of humour and reality your poem ...
