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!


24. 24th Jan: She

Date: Saturday 24th January 2015

Style: Free Verse

Title: She

She'd tell you the sky is blue

I'd tell you the sky is grey

She'd tell you it's high noon

But, it's always midnight somewhere in the world, I'd say

She'd tell you lies about me

I'd tell you lies to protect her

She'd tell you I'd had an imaginary friend

I'd tell you I was only trying to please, playing along with her game

She'd sell me out to win your favour

I'd be exposed for all to see

She'd make me fetch a rod for my own back

I'd laugh, ridiculously, as she beat me

She'd never see herself as I do

I'd never be seen as I see myself

She'd say we're all doing the best we can

I'd say that's chicken feed, a liars wealth

She'd say she loves me

I'd say love can be a selfish desire

She'd say she gave me everything she was

I'd say she took everything I am, that I could be, like an unhappy, deluded, mana vampire.

Like a caged bird

My wings clipped

You left the door ajar

But I'm too afraid to hop away
