Conversations 17 - A Rhyming Response

There's a special kind of charm associated with rhymes and poetry. It makes saying something easier, probably more romantic and all the more special. This poem from the Conversations series takes a different route to the usual storytelling. Read on.

From the highs of the highs and the lows of the lows
The moments of passionate love and the instances of steady flows
You have always stood by my side, keeping together
Sticking around, sharing your love and emotions for the better

"It's over", she said.

"As if", I shot back, mocking her umpteenth threat of leaving me. "We both know that a break up is not gonna happen, not after all these years."

Afraid 23

"In the last few years, I have had multiple paranormal experiences, running into a different entity every few days; the worst of which has been the cackling baby who enjoys disturbing my sleep each night. And, on nights that I don't wake up, it would attempt to munch my fingers off, leaving behind dried blood for me to clean up."
