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!

37. 6th Feb: The Ghost Of Me

Date: Friday 6th February 2015

Style: Free Verse

Title: The Ghost Of Me

What would the ghost of my former self think of me?

The person I am now.

The person I used to be haunts my dreams and stalks the shadows

I don't miss him

He may have been young and pretty and full of potential

But he was naive and gullible and easily hurt

I may be lonely now and less likely to take risks

But at least I protect my heart, keep my shield up against others

He whispers in the night lamenting missed opportunities

I cover my head with the duvet and ignore his regrets

There is only the future you see, however bleak it may be

Take note, you fiend

Be gone and flee

The ghost of me
