Black & White

Secret wishes and hypnotic depths
Lonely wind and a storm on way
Flowing water and crashing wave
Mysterious eyes and fire and flame

A radiant sunshine and a cloud grey
A nightmare and a sweet dream play
A lively soul and a dreadful decay
Its all extreme and nothing halfway

Beautiful promise and a ugly fray
A silent prayer and a sword to slay
Visious war and a dance of ballet
Scorpion sting and a heart of clay

Be cautious of what you convey
She is not as easy as a child’s play
Carrying the emotions of all array
She can be a fairy and your doomsday.

  2. Yeshu, Gorgeous poem! It reminds me of a saying of the feminist movement that was popular when I was young, “Never underestimate the power of a woman!”

    What do men see when they look at a woman? Thankfully, most men know we are human beings with an intellectual and an emotional capacity similar to their own. A few out there may still see a stereotype who is there only to please them. Your poem is a fair warning to men who would take women for granted. πŸ™‚

    Have a great weekend!

    1. Thanks Cheryl for such a wonderful comment. You are right its wrong to stereotype any gender. Every person is different and especially in the case of women they are so unpredictable specially when someone cross them in a wrong way.
      Glad you find this post relevant. You too have an awesome weekend ahead ❀️

  3. Oh my God, did I just read Yeshu describing her own self, sting of Scorpio but heart of clay.
    All those paradoxical references about this woman makes the poem such a beautiful read!

    Enjoyed each and every bit of it Yeshu. Absolutely beautiful ❀️

    1. Hey.. thanks Deepak. Glad you noticed that. Honestly I wrote that first para way back.. yesterday I just continued the same and somehow unknowingly the rest three para ended up with β€˜y’. I was thinking to edit and write the first stanza again but I was too tired. So I posted it πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆ

  8. Such a wonderful poemπŸ˜ƒ
    The two sides of the world
    Two sides of women
    As they say in China, yin, and yang. The contrast and opposing forces are complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world
    And both sides are necessary to keep the world alive
