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!


51. 20th Feb: White Lies, Grey Lies, Black Lies

Date: Friday 20th February 2015

Style: Rhyming Couplets

Title: White Lies, Grey Lies, Black Lies

Every little white lie you tell is still a lie

And it is still meant to mislead people

But I can't tell her she looks fat in that

I'm no martyr strapped to a steeple!

A grey lie is a relatively small lie

"I can't come in today, I'm feeling sick"

Socially unacceptable, don't get caught!

Especially at the big game, that's the trick!

A black lie is a horrible, nasty lie

Like having two wives ignorant of each other

The lie is there for the liar alone, hurts all

Causing much grief, pain to another
