30 Day Poetry Challenge Day One: Withdraw

Posted by

Welcome, weebs and authors alike, to The Aniwriter

I celebration of the coming new year, and feeling a renewed vow to keep my creative juices flowing, I decided to do my own version of the 30 Day Poetry Challenge. I did something similar to this with the 30 Day Anime Challenge earlier this year, and for each day I wrote about a new topic given by the prompt. For this challenge, I am going to be posting a new poem every day for thirty days. The poems will have a range from short to potentially super long, but there will be a poem each day, without fail.

For anyone wanting to participate as well, the one and only rule is that you must post a new poem every day for thirty days. Other than that, the poems can be about whatever you want.

With that being said, here is the first poem: Withdraw.

It is often hard to step away from someone you care about,
to see that they are struggling but know that you sit there, unable to help.
Your blood boils over with a strange mix of Anger and guilt,
the world around you seems to disappear.
Engulfed in this feeling, delusions of grandeur fill your head with images of heroism,
of being the one to save them in the end.
But then, you return to reality, your selfish fantasies gone, and you withdraw.

How do you guys feel about this poem? Let me know in the comments below. Also, if you want to support the Aniwriter through donations or are just feeling generous, consider buying me a coffee on Ko-fi or using my Affiliate link to buy stuff:
