I’m falling for you.
Little by little, and then
all at once!
Stepping into my heart
Softly scaling the boundaries
Finding our way together.
Flashback Friday and it is Valentine’s Week! This is one of the posts from my daily posting challenge last year on Instagram. Head on over there to read some more fresh pieces that I post almost daily. My account is sv__poetry.

Besotted, I look for you in others
A yardstick by which they are measured.
Coz I know, I cannot survive eternity
If you’re not here right by me.
Besotted means strongly infatuated.
Yardstick means a measuring rod a yard long, typically divided into inches. A standard used for comparison.

For the next prompt of the #augunfiltered challenge, the prompt was Ingenue.
INGENUE is an innocent or unsophisticated young woman, especially in a play or film. Generally a girl or a young woman who is endearingly innocent and wholesome.
Paragon is a person or thing regarded as a perfect example of a particular quality.
Here is my take on it:
She walks like petals on water
Her fragrance lingering
long after she’s gone.
You can see the innocence in her eyes
and the honesty of thought,
The ingenue has an aura
That makes her a paragon.
It doesn’t matter
how many words were unsaid,
Because each moiety of my heart
would love you anyway
With every bated breath!
Moiety means each of two parts into which a thing is or can be divided. Indefinite share or part. For ex: the tax was to be delivered in two pieces.
Bated means eagerly or anxiously.
Bated breath literally means “holding one’s breath. .
The next prompt of #augunfiltered was moiety. I must admit it proved to be a very challenging prompt but the thought in the post is very simple. That even if your heart is broken into a million pieces, each one is capable of love anyway. In fact, it makes your heart and your feelings even bigger when you’ve gone through something tragic. Because you can now recognise the importance of each moment and emotion. Here the person is waiting with bated breath because they are ready to love even with their heart in pieces. It’s not terribly sad, but very inviting. .
Hey! Almost every one of you would know that I have an Instagram account where I only post my original poetry. The account is fairly new considering I’ve been blogging for over two years now. And in the spirit of the Valentine month, I took up this daily posting challenge started by the Illogical Poem World account. They have posted a list of prompts for each day of February, and announce the winners for each day by following the hashtag.
And, I’m posting everyday on Instagram! I am on a roll. It seemed like a daunting task in the beginning but I’ve done it for 10 days without fail. I would love to have all of you guys with me there too. Leave some encouraging comments, likes and follows. I would be delighted! 🙂 My account is sv__poetry. I post only the shorter forms of my poetry, because those get the most engagement.
Full Disclosure: Poetry is my valentine. And yes, I’m a dork. But I love Love. And who am I to deny the inspiration that it serves for some excellent writing!
