    •Extensions may only be granted if a moderator has given consent prior to a verse being posted in the match OR your opponent gives his consent. Failure to acknowledge an extension request results in it being granted.

    •CHECK-INS are encouraged, but not required
    •Verses MUST incorporate AT LEAST 1 of the provided topics or pictures

    •If your opponent fails to show, you MUST STILL post AT LEAST 4 lines (4-15) AND 3 voting links in order to claim victory. A failure to post voting links will result in a loss.
    •A Championship Title WILL NOT be decided by way of no-show!!!

    • Competitors are limited to posting 3 times in their own match, which allows for checking in, posting votes, and posting a verse. For each post over 3 unless deemed necessary by the mods, the competitor will be docked one vote.
    • Each competitor may only post once in another competitors battle allowing for a vote and nothing more, if you would like an explanation or to explain as to why a vote was cast a certain way, you can pm them or point things out properly in the vote to begin with. Violating this will result in losing a vote in your match.

    Where the headstones read like love letters
    A dove settles on the rough header
    Dust streaks crush feathers
    On this blushed cheek trust seller

    I was the hero of the story, gun powdered my gums
    But my call to arms sounded louder to some
    I’d shout so the rum brave few would listen and look
    To see a queen castle her defence with a villainous rook
    A vision that took hold and strangled my sight
    Sanguine and lithe the way my habit prescribed
    With a tablet inside even oxygen was optional
    Hopping all the obstacles with rotten fruit as rocket fuel
    Eating cotton truth with my tongue on my lips
    Eyes bloodshot wishing every summer was this
    With a hunger that rips through days to fight
    A saviour’s plight without the energy to be brave at night
    I feel brave inside as the war bought out my patient side
    So I’ll wait with cigarette lit as you race to die
    With grace I glide the catch on my rifle and sing
    To the choir ‘til the chorus dies on the wind

    You answered my war call with dirt on your palm
    Nothing on your person but the burden of charm
    With the mercy to calm dragons in their moment of need
    To hold their hands and bring them home as a sober retreat
    Nothing grows from this deed but reliance and trust
    No faith in a war where they aren’t dying for us
    You were another diamond to cut glass
    Tongue in my cheek stuck fast to a tucked laugh
    We had a rough start but we knew that we’d last
    If we grew with the grass we’d lose nothing to chance
    I was elusive with the truth, bullets in a cloth sack
    I scrawled my own name on one but lost track
    Stitching my injuries on a cloth bag with cheap needles
    Because they won’t school us on love just teach evil
    Now my beliefs see through so marry my please
    These are our salad days but it’s only famine I see

    We grew with the grass picked petals to dream
    Crushed them up and replanted as a heaven to be
    Sold the garden at a penny a seed
    Rough shod hymns on the perimeter penning the scene
    With the reverence it needs we set out our brief
    Peppered with rhetoric our debtors believed
    Until it bled on the sheets like spilled wine
    On a silk tie now we wait until the field dries
    So we can till lines and wait for the harvest to come
    Let the rainfall become another part of my tongue
    We start them so young with blood in the robes of a priest
    Carving a sunshine path with a rose in my teeth
    Another stolen belief from when belief was so new
    Hope grew through the branches I spoke through
    I kept them trimmed so they wouldn’t choke you
    Now I walk through these gardens with a ghost’s hue

    Fate's Design

    It's another cold day on earth,
    I'd try to pray, but the sky today seems like rain or worse,
    Walk with blades, got a razor shirt,
    I'm sharp as shit, shank anybody in the way I work,
    Darth Vadar, demonic, part-pagan and shaman,
    Large bank in the pocket, car - stays in garages,
    If you looked deep inside my eyes, you'd see I'm conscious,
    But that look, it just hides the lie, I'm just a zombie,
    With insomnia, I'm comically a problem but,
    I constantly move on to seek greater works of starting up-
    any kind of harm and grief to hearts that beat the common blood,
    Cuz every single part of me was carved from these problems son.

    I'm on a drug, call it devil's blood, I drink daily to live,
    The truth is it never failed me a bit,
    Some say I'm possessed, most say I'm depressed,
    I say I'm just a waster with a way with the pen,
    How easy it is, to slip a little something
    In the drinks that they sip, then dip into the summer,
    Knowin' that every girl that gets laid
    is gonna scream, "Rape," is gonna get paid,
    And no one would suspect the dude that just left,
    Might as well leave the pills on one of the dudes that just slept,
    Little funny things that I do to prepare,
    Myself for a life of bringing doom and despair.

    I used to make fun of Jared, even started the trend,
    Knowin' God damn well exactly how it would end,
    Yet, now that we're friends, he let's me in on his thoughts,
    Tells me all the things he'd do if he couldn't get caught,
    And I tell 'em, he should do it, he should teach 'em a lesson,
    I mean, I learned, and I stopped the aggression,
    As we speak, his backpack holds a gat, a piece,
    He's just waitin' for the day that his madness peaks,
    And then I'll laugh as I pass the meak,
    And he screams, "He was good to me!" to sad police,
    Make everything a tragedy,
    I could stand in the sun and make the shadows leak.

    That's the reason I'm here, I make no reservations,
    It's clear, I ain't here for help or preservation,
    I was dealt a seperate way from the well,
    That's something that ain't hard to tell...
    My wishes never came true, unless it was to bring to pain to the fools,
    I'm from hell, I ain't moral or truth or allegory to use,
    Simply put, I'm a horror to you,
    Just know that I'm around, and I'm sort of amused,
    Because of how you think your surely immune,
    As you march in a pack, you're my morbid platoon,
    Manipulated by me, like waves by the moon...

    Nom - I really like the imagery in this piece. Lines like this "These are our salad days but it’s only famine I see" where stellar. These simple lines had so much substance in them with such few words. The flow was great and the rhymes were on point. Although rhymes like 'laugh' and 'glass' don't really rhyme but i liked how you put internal rhyming to help ease this issue. Good work here



    Got Life? - I liked the story but it just wasn't on par with your normal work. It felt rushed and seems like you just wrote it to be done with it. The rhymes were good. The flow was good but not like your normal work. This didn't even feel like you. Still the story was enjoyable nonetheless.


    V/ Nom for having a better written piece of writing with better imagery.

    Souled and Urizen, if you guys can post votes by 9 pst, that'd be cool.



    nom- wow, took me forever to read this, but this was dope. my two favorite parts of this verse is the imagery and the flow. i cant really choose which was better. also, i really enjoyed the opening four lines of this. was a good scene setter. idunno, i really cant find anything about this verse to criticize. great drop.

    GL? - this is pretty far off from your normal structure. your lines are usually very short, but throughout this one you had some stretched lines. i dont think i've ever seen that from you. the story was pretty cool, but it just didnt seem as polished as you usually are.

    vote- nom.
