CONTEST
There's a dragon in my head,
And he's watching me and smiling,
And for sure I do not like this,
For he's thinking of me dying,

There's a selkie just behind,
And she sets my belly roiling,
And although I block my ears,
Her laughter there's no foiling,

There are bane-sidhes in my dreams,
And I'm really getting nervous,
For we all know what they mean,
And they like to sing in chorus,

And the pixies skip round me,
Whenever I dare look away,
Poking, pinching, prodding, prodding,
With fingers sharp and fey,

I wondered how a dragon smiles,
With jaws so full of teeth,
But I can live without knowing,
Of the gullet that lies beneath...



Entries!

There's a harpy in my eyes
and she's uglier than sin
but she takes a pretty guise
and tempts me from within   
pegacorna2

The sounds of claws across the glass
Titter softly through my sleep
While dragons breath fogs up the night
As across the road it creeps.
MadMikkie

His teeth are so sharp,
his scales so defined.
While his breath stays hot,
his eyes stay kind.
Desopilar Random winner

A caterpillar stands out bold and clear
Against the moonlight gloom
While Dragon pauses, glances now
And tempts me to my doom
MadMikkie 1st place

A flower fairy showers me
with petals light as air
Distracting me while all her friends
tie elf-knots in my hair
Brigaurdylian772nd place

I wondered if a dragon cries,
of what sorrows he would speak,
his scaley mouth a sharp toothed frown,
tears like diamonds on his cheek.
Aseamlessbond3rd place

Sirens sing their subduing tune
Loudly into my head
I cannot escape their call
Nor can I escape the dread
Nickelpat

my head is now dizzy
my hands begin to shake.
the demons surround me,
there's tablets i need to take.
KNOTTBOLD

A mermaid floats serenely by
and offers me her hand,
I tremble at the knowledge
that she'll drown me if she can
Brigaurdylian77 Won popular choice

Wrote this on Christmas Day when my internet was down... wrote about eight poems, plus scraps actually.

This one isn't great but it bounces.

(tip - bane-sidhe = banshee. I just want to spell it the older way, because it looks 'right' :D )

Crit is good; I think all the line syllables match, not sure about the actual beat in places though.

Hmmm... also, if I get four or more verses following on, I'll do a journal feature. Preferably from different people.
Yes. You heard me.
WRITE ME ANOTHER VERSE!

ENTRY!
Just because everyone was using powerful and scary creatures I wanted to do the complete opposite. Flower fairies are always though of as tiny innocent beings. But they can be very mischevious!

A flower fairy showers me
with petals light as air
Distracting me while all her friends
tie elf-knots in my hair

and a darker one just for the hell of it:

A mermaid floats serenely by
and offers me her hand,
I tremble at the knowledge
that she'll drown me if she can
