[contest is over] Write a poem - Get a gift-copy of the game
So, I had a bit of spare Steam funds left and decided to get an extra copy of TES5 to give away to a complete stranger.

You want it? Get creative and write a poem right here in the forum. It can be happy, it can be sad. Anything. It should get the point across, but not have you reading for ten minutes.

The one I like the best, I will add as a friend and gift the copy to.

Though, it's not a sure way to win but I will let it be known that I am a die-hard metal fan, and embrace dark & macabre imagery. Favourite bands are the likes of Slayer and Black Sabbath.

It's midnight for me here, I'll leave the contest open til' 03:00. You have three hours to write a kick-♥♥♥ poem. GO!

[EDIT]

I should not that it will help your chances if you do not already own the game. I just think that's fair.

wishes and desire
A land without pain and grief
everywhere is trust and believe
step in or out
so blessed no doubt!
Across wishes and desire
sharper than the most blazing fire
calmer than a whole dead empire
my fantasy lays higher and higher

i did all i could lol, i'm not english btw. that means a lot to me

Generals gathered in their masses, just like witches at black masses. Evil minds that plot destruction, sorcerers of death's construction. In the fields the bodies burning, as the war machine keeps turning. Death and hatred to mankind, poisoning their brainwashed minds.

LOL i let someoe else write a real one

"Rolling Thunder Goddess"

As she rode her Hover Harley down that path,
Her long black hair flew up from her back.

She rode down that concrete path grooving left and right,
Her Hover Harley singing and her singing with all their might.

Towns and cities past her left and right,
Nights into day, days into night.
Dual daggers in her thigh high boots,
meant no match for anyone who picked a fight.

She rode her Iron Horse on through the night,
Timeless Eternity, and never without a fight.
Listening to Pantera, Megadeth as she rode on,
music and her Iron Horse helped her fight on.

This is a published poem of mine already...Just to let you know.

Some like Pop
Some like Hip-Hop
Some like to listen to Slayer
Some choose to be a PC player
Giving away a game
Is not an everyday thing
So Buckaroo is gonna be wise
When giving the winner his or her prize

Well met, stranger
Elated to make your acquaintance
Now, may I entertain you with some quotations over cadence?
You see, I bear some rare, amazing information
And you look like someone who is used to strange situations
There is a hidden portal within the Bard's College
I was brought through, an immortal to impart knowledge
About an other-wordly form of Redguard sonnet
They took a thumping drum beat and said bars on it
I wandered through Solitude, departed Haafingar
Past Hjaalmarch, through The Reach, east of Markarth
I reached the Whiterun Hold
I preached in rhyme and told the people
That the need to speak was higher than the price of gold
Nothing can beat soul, not even sweet rolls
I've got it locked like a pick stuck in a keyhole
I leave you wee trolls wishing that you'd re-rolled
By the Nine Divines, my rhyme's a sight to behold
My freeholds are threefold
I rock the property chain
Cause I'm the top bloody Thane in this Monopoly game
So you'd better watch the throne, Stormcloak
Cause you're getting overthrown by an ordinary bloke
It's high time Skyrim had a new High King
And I like hiking - it's quite exciting
I'm descended from the Vikings back in my kingdom
But my lyric writing's better than my skill at fighting
My pen is mightier than swords; it's the right choice
They call me "MF Thu'um" when I use my Voice
With each rap, my Speechcraft keeps stacking
If you could see the graph, you'd actually be laughing
You'll never sound as fresh, I'm a rockstar
I climb the seven thousand steps to High Hrothgar
Like Jurgen Windcaller, my words'll bring more disorder
Than mixing Skooma in an Orcish brigand's drink order
A bawdy bard that raps, my Voice'll cause your cart to crash
Your horse's armor cracks under the awesome force of Paarthurnax
But here's the secret I needed to tell:
You can be an MC with me aswell
Forget the Blades, me and you don't need the Greybeards
Who are Mehrunes Dagon and the Daedra to an atheist?
Mages, take your Spell Tome and go the hell home
Cause who needs boots of speed when we've got shell toes?
And, so whether you drink Honeymead or Alto
Be sure that Dan'll smelt flows 'til all of Tamriel knows
You should use the bars of the bard deep inside you
And 'til we meet again, friend: Talos guide you
Talos guide you

Also, write it yourself.

Evil lurks in caverns hidden
Bring your sword and do as bidden
Skyrim calls for those who dare
Make them bleed without a care
Murdering thieves, we honor none
Take their women when we're done
Killed a priest, I'm now hellbound
bury his ashes on tainted ground
Slay the dragon that good men fear
Bar your doors, Death is here.

An hour and a half left! Get your creativity berets on.

Their are noodles in her pockets, it helps extend my rocket.
The noodles flavor no longer bold, instead seasoned with pocket lint.
The noodles age are sold, perception of the condition in my eyes remain mint.
A sour odor that only I adore.
Her noodle odor escaping her pockets alerts me before her knocking on my door.
I escort her to my bedroom, she complies with joy.
My joy extends hers, for she is just a toy.
I ask her to remove her pants, her denim waste meets my carpet.
I retrive the pants, observe her stance, her cheeks go white to scarlet.
I throw her out, of my house, close the door and lock it.
For you see, I care not about the girl, but the noodles in her pocket.

Darkness falls as we set forth
The one we seek lies to the north
By stealth or rage, his death is nigh
For we doth kill by blackened sky
Poison or blade, it matters not
His death insured, our blood runs hot
Avenge the girl that we once cherished
Drink of his blood when he has perished
We slay his kin to terrify
We burn his home, tonight all die

Again, not bad, but one poem per person so you'll have to stick to your first one.
