Oh god I'm late.
I thought the deadline was 27th. I'm still going to write this one down here anyways. Even if it doesn't count I'd like to share it.
Dead Man's Remorse
The dead are wailing, for the secrets keep them tied
Things they kept hidden when they died
and all the things they lied.

The emotions they kept in
Tortured them from within.

The secrets they didn't release
held them away from peace

The dead are wailing, for the regrets keep them tied
The hellos they never said,
And the I-love-yous that were too late

They were stubborn till their death
With no honesty from their last breath

Now they drown
in grief
with no way
of relief

Say your last words before either you or your loved ones die. You never know what's gonna happen. Don't be a restless skeleton!

My Time in this Universe
While my time in this universe has only been 15 billion years,
and being, less than half my life span has passed by-
I've seen many wonders about me, the creation of Time, the Dawn of Life,
the struggle to remain the only constant, as so many have passed away.

Yet, I've see those things, that others only dream.

What am I? Where am I from? Where do I go?

-THE UNIVERSAL CONSTANT-

i want to blame this on being high. <that'll be a title.

a secret's only secret if it's stuck in your head,
a secret's only secret if those who know are dead.
Til the grave it does weigh
on the souls it can't sway,
the only place to hide
is in your black heart with the flies.

Lake Carana
little steps through the fog
scarcely a sound.
sound of the wind is howling
when no one was around.
here comes a person
wearing black and blue.
But oh wait! There is someone
who wants to come too.
They glide through the ice
stride,stride,stride.
the lake cracks in symphony
as the lovers collide.
water shows it's face
as the people skate.
the ice collapses down
as so the lovers fate.
the lake fills of water
the lover's spirits high.
This fate would be stopped,
if only just a lie.

Secrets are really unique!

Secrets Are Really Unique,
It's your Decision to Keep or sweep,
They have unlimited Titles,
The choice is yours to Have,
Others May crave and be curious,
But It's Still your Alternative!

Secrets May be extreme or Light,
If you Decide to Let your Secret reveal,
Tell them to the person Who you can trust,
because, secrets are not a thing to be told upon...
..two - faced people!

At last, alas!
Secrets have a really Fantastic, amazing and interesting Feature,
That if you reveal them,
The choice that other people Bestow upon you,
can be really beneficial,
More than that you expect,
It's a mystery, that can turn into history,
All you need to do is...
To reveal them after thinking a ton!

Phew, This is my first poem I've written in a Legend's Poetry Contest! I hope My Poem is good.

The Substantial mind, flowing with Secrets...

The Substantial mind flowing with Secrets is yet a thing to see,
They can be essential to share with Just you and me,
Your mind Pleads and needs Secrets,
and succeeds if there is not greed.

The Substantial mind, flowing with Secrets is a tough Maze,
Don't be Puzzled in her alluring Gaze,
People May craze to Know...
Your Beautiful and interesting Secrets....

The Substantial mind, flowing with secrets is like a vast ocean...
in which you can store inexhaustible Secrets,
and Also release them with your Choice...
But, it also warns you...
not to create a lot of Noise!

The substantial Mind, flowing with secrets, finally, is Beautiful,
But Don't Sell them often to Evil People, or else...
You'll have to live a life you never wanted to Live,
Like Living Hell!

Thank You!

I know Legend is indeed very late, but don't you think deciding without him is a little bit rude?
