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!

Title: I Left My Poem At Home

I left my poem at home
So please except these words instead
Erm, I'd give you a drawing I did of you
But the dog ate it and retired to his bed

I left my poem at home
Was the deadline really today?
I wanted to tell you how I felt about you!
Now I won't be able to, no way!

I left my poem at home
My computer crashed and I couldn't print it out!
Please don't call me a liar
There is no need to scream and shout!

I left my poem at home
I've been consumed by repainting the church
It's all that extra-curricular volunteer work I do
Sorry to leave you in the lurch!

I left my poem at home
I've been so ill I thought I was going to die
You know how reliable I am usually
I'm not the kind of person to lie

I left my poem at home
Okay, so I didn't get around to writing it
But when I sat down to describe the wonder of you
I couldn't find words beautiful enough that would fit

I left my poem at home
So please except these words instead
It just wasn't up to scratch to convey to you
The thoughts and feelings in my head
