Of Metaphors Some find metaphors too clichéd Shun it from their parlance I agree, Metaphors aren't direct, You can't ever really know what they mean, But isn't that the beauty of it? That I refuse to confine to one word labels? Why can't I say listening to you is like discovering a familiar-forgotten scent from my past - of how my grandma smelt as she stepped out of the puja room, turmeric and incense and jasmine Heady enough to make my head spin but crave for it again - like an addict as I ran around the house pleading for a game of 'pagade' and a little snack before lunch, I knew I smelt it even as she burnt on the banks of Ganga. Metaphors let me compare your voice to the warmth by the fireplace as we sat gazing at the stars, Tea and books and bean bags The reassurance of comfort - of love. I can tell you that being around you makes me feel amazing But I can also say that it is a hundred times the happiness I felt upon spotting a shooting star on the beach - you lying next to me - listening to the orchestra of the sea. Don't you see? I hate metaphors too But when I write about you, they come naturally, Like even words know they aren't enough When I write about you, Metaphors are all that's left. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #poetrypublisher #poetrylover #poemsporn #poemsforthesoul #poemsofinstagram #poetsofinstagram #you #poetryaccount #poetryporn #poetryline #poetrycorner #metaphor #oflife #love #lovingtheordinarymoments #lovepoetry

Translation: Many people Have asked me Why I Decided To go To France I have Given Different reasons to Each person Because If I gave The real Reason That I left the United States Because I read a French novel And discovered a passage In it that moved me so deeply That I looked out the window At the streets of Bed-Stuy And told myself that one day, Whether in 5 or 25 years, I would move to Paris And learn the language and Submerge myself in the the culture to understand The foundations and elements that created the words which shook my soul... Nobody would believe me. * * * #javoue #poésie #ecrivain #juliensorel #lerougeetlenoir #stendhal #montagne #paris #parisart #americaninfrance #americaninparis #avoue #create #art #poetry #poet #poetrylover #lavraieraison #fouqué #petitegloire #verrières #rayonsdusoleil #âme #personnenemecroit #découvrir #jeanphilippeblondel #mariehenribeyle #henribeyle #lachartreusedeparme #balzac
