Poetry 365 Challenge: A Poem A Day - 2015

I started this on Inkvite, then Wattpad, now I'm trying out Movellas!

There is no real prize as such, just the adventure of expression, and bettering ourselves as writers.

I'm no poetry expert but used to enjoy writing poems in school. So thought this could be fun and a good way of improving writing skills.

There are no major rules, you can write in any style of poetry you like, as long and short as you like.

I will set set various topics or themes, but again, you can follow your own path if they don't appeal to you.

For example, I think the first poem we write should be on the theme of "New Year's Resolutions" posted on 1st Jan 2015.

I will post the current theme at the top of this page regularly.

Hope you guys like this idea please leave comments letting me know if you support it.

Please share on social media and with your followers if you feel so inclined.

I'm going to use the tag 365 in this so we can find each other's work.

Note: my poems are only semi-biographical!

54. 23rd Feb: The Mirroring

Date: Monday 23rd February 2015

Style: Free Verse

Title: The Mirroring

I thought I had echolalia

But that wasn't it at all

I can't even say it

Mirror, mirror

I went to Hull for two weeks

I came back with the full accent

And a shell suit, it was the 80's!

Mirror, mirror

Apparently it's called Mirroring

The Hull accent lasted a week

The shell suit slightly longer

Mirror, mirror

Personality disorder

Vacant or distorted self-image

Absent or useless parents

Mirror, mirror

This is The Mirroring

I've learnt to wear a mask

Resist copying those I speak to

Smash it! Smash it!
