Have you ever written a poem so powerful that it could bring someone to tears? If so, this contest is for you. I am looking for a poem that's almost too perfect, one that takes the reader on an emotional journey filled with sadness, joy, or any other awe-inspiring emotion that leaves the reader in tears. Think you can do that? If so, put your talent to use and enter this contest.


I review at least two pieces of each winner's writing.
