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!

27. 27th Jan: The Temptress

Date: Tuesday 27th January 2015

Style: Free Verse

Title: The Temptress

 

Eve was weak, and yes, she liked it

Red apples all round

Red and juicy

The temptress has been gifted with beauty

Men are weak and lustful

She batters her eyelids seductively

And they crowd round her like dogs

Pandering to her every whim

She is never without the things she wants

Stamps her feet when she doesn't get her own way

Cries if that doesn't work

Makes false allegations if need be

But it doesn't always work

The temptress isn't always believed

And I don't want your red juicy apples

For you see

I'm gay

Still she cries out

Unable to control her nature

She holds out a gift to you, pleading

"Would you like a red juicy apple?"
