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!

53. 22nd Feb: Shallow Tides

Date: Sunday 22nd February 2015

Style: Free Verse

Title: Shallow Tides

Your shallow tides are drowning me slowly

You dumped a guy because he shaved his beard

Another because he wore the collar of his coat up

Are we really so shallow and empty inside?

Are we just commodities to be exchanged?

Used up and spat out like bubblegum?

Drown me in your shallow tides

Let me wash up on some foreign shore

Then release me back to the electric universe
