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!


22. 22nd Jan: The Yearning

Date: Thursday 22nd January 2015

Style: Free Verse

Title: The Yearning

A gentle touch that caresses

A cheeky smile that reaches the eyes

A secret embrace in a doorway

The lovers arms, simply there to hold you, and never let you go

An understanding ear

A mouth that never scolds you

Eyes that never judge harshly

Expression of eternal understanding and support

The harsh reality and unbending truth

The yearning inside so deep and strong

So obvious to others, your sad eyes

Dreaming of Prince Charming, dreaming your life away

Yet, he must exist, you can't be the only one who feels this way, surely?

You can't be the only one with a heart up on a shelf?

Are damsels in distress in far greater numbers than heroes to rescue them?

The Yearning, a burning desire

You wish you could switch it off

Like you've never been kissed

It's like lover repellent
