Hi Blake!

The stars scorings on your poem page represent votes made by members after the contest concluded, they are not the official contest votes. Contest votes are those received during the contest voting period, and winners are notified via email for every contest vote received.
Your poem received two contest votes, unfortunately falling short of placing among the winners this time.

For the full contest rules and guidelines, please visit: https://www.poetry.com/contest

Wishing you the best of luck in our upcoming contests!
