Perceptions…

Poetry

Every breath I take,
Every bone I break,
I’ve a story to tell.

 
A story of passion,
A story of compassion,
Deep, dark confessions.

 
I could scare away the devil,
Or I could be the sweetest angel,
 I’m the best of both worlds.

 
I’m the fiery hot fire,
I’m the stark cold ice,
I’m the opposite poles.

 
But don’t you dare try and define me,
I’m much more than can perceive ,
I’m a universe of my own!

  8. Beautiful poem(as always)… This is the best poem that showed we all are different and have different perception and lots of stories inside them… I especially loved the last stanza But don’t you dare try and define me,
    I’m much more than can perceive ,
    I’m a universe of my own!

  9. Hey, did you change your eiditor, that is to say, from Classic to this Block editor? Jeez this thing sucks, I didn’t mean to okay it and now I’m trying to get the old one back.

      1. I remember when they did it a couple of years ago. I liked it at first, then I realized it had some limitations so I switched back. I haven’t had another prompt until this morning saying this is the “new” editor and there was no way to opt out of it, well not yet anyway. It’s a little confusing to me. 🙁 I’m legally blind, I don’t like change. 🙁

      2. I really don’t know how to change it back. I hope you find a way though! 🤗 Maybe you can write to WordPress… 🤔

  10. There are posits that need a minding
    There are other questions that needed answering
    There are hearts that wanted a wanting
    But there are people that longed a reminiscing.
    I don’t care if this is your life
    I don’t belong to this preposition
    I don’t need anyone to tell me
    But there won’t be another contention
    (just my few words to make your time worthwhile)

    1. Thank you so so so much, dear. This means a lot to me. I’ll obviously accept it. Thanks a million!!! You really made my day. ❤️❤️❤️😘😘😘💖💖💖

  11. Hi shreya. I am just here to have your attention to my latest post “an ode to you” posted few times back.
    Since many of my fellow bloggers were confused about the context and to whom it was dedicated and some lines in the post were controversial😅😅. So i just want to make sure ki koi misunderstanding na rahe😅. You can see all the khichdi jo bann gayi in the comment’s section.
    But it was a funny experience for me though😅😅🤣.

      1. Right now, a little exhausted after clearing doubts of friends on the post. Otherwise, m doing great. Hope you are good too.

    1. Thank you so so so much, dear!! You keep surprising me like this!!! You really made my day. 🤗🤗🤗😘😘😘😘❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️💘💘💘💘💘♥️♥️♥️♥️
