The Writer Diaries - Micropoetry, July 2016

If you read this blog and/or my Twitter account a lot, you might know that I like to dabble aimlessly in micropoetry.

Micropoetry is basically poetry in the length of a tweet. Which is awesome, no?

So, without further ado, here's the micropoetry I wrote in July (which is hopefully a little more up-beat than a lot of my micropoetry has been in recent months!)

12th July

Can you know
I'm fragile glass,
And yet know
I'm strong as steel?

Can you take
Conflicting truths,
And believe
Both truths are real?

14th July

I know
It's never easy.
Just once
I wish
It wasn't quite
so hard.

18th July

You still don't get it
I'm not like you -
never was.
You're all made of sunshine,
but honey, I'm not.
I'm starlight,
I'm the stars.

21st July

Fingers dance across the keyboard
Pull the letters into the beat
Pirouette into a woven textile
Heart strings pulled along to the beat

  1. These are all really good - keep it up! :D I especially like the first one, but I love how you always manage to make things sound mysterious. Don't know if that's your aim, but it's how your micropoetry comes across to me. :P

    1. Ha, thanks! To be honest, I think you're giving me credit for more forethought than I actually have ;) glad you find it mysterious anyhow *looks over sunglasses a la Audrey Hepburn, but looks like a fool instead* and thanks sooooooooo much for the lovely comment! :) I'm so glad you like it :)

  2. The July 14th one seems so sad and yet so beautiful!! I think it could relate to a lot of people.

    1. Yeah... I wasn't having a great day! I'm glad you liked it though :)
