You complain that storytelling is gory. You complain that storytelling seems to have become story yelling. You complain that storytelling weaves magic with witches and demons, not fairies and angels. You complain that stories smell of sweat and blood, not roses and dew drops. That they whisper muffled screams, not sweet nothings. That they glorify death, not life. You complain that stories shout ugly truths, not pretty lies. That they murder virtue, and glorify vice. You complain that storytelling doesn't work one step at a time, but rather rolls a dice. It isn't a make-believe world where fairness rules Instead, it's a world where cruelty reigns, And angels sigh And devils grin. Where happiness droops And sadness sings. You complain that storytelling is bitter. The opposite of sweet nectar. You cry that it is devoid of colour But it isn't my darling, it's simply grey It's simply a reflection of the real world Where tigers stalk their prey. You complain that there are no muffins on the tray But there are my dear, they are simply made of mud and clay. You complain now that storytelling mirrors the real world And of course it does. But my darling, it doesn't have to be that way. You see,even though witches rule, Fairies do live. And both bask in magic. And even though cruelty reigns Kindness does breathe, you know. Even though the words are bitter At least we know of sweet nectar. And though devils grin We do have the knowledge that angels sing. And murdered virtue can be avenged And glorified vice condemned. Cause darling, sometimes the rolling dice, Does give one, you know. And sometimes, just sometimes, you get a six too. Cause darling, storytelling is magic. Even though it may be black at times, You see, It's all a matter of perspective. COPYRIGHT YASHVI BANSAL

I tried my hand at turncoat poetry, the results of which are in front of you.
Wrote this while I was supposed to be studying and got a nice scolding, but I believe all the pain is worth it when it comes to writing.
This is Part 1 of the 'You Complain' series. I was going to just leave it at 'You Complain', but then decided that 'Storytelling' was a better title. The second part of 'You Complain' will be up soon.

Morning dew sprinkled on buds and caused to awaken it from its slumber. Sun, peeped out across the garden and beckoned the buds to enlarge their petal arms. Now the buds blossomed into influencing flowers which soaked dew, basked sun and, in return let the bees to suck its nectar and let the humans to pluck it for their devotees and their dear one.

Riding untamed passion in flickers of moon light Souls drenched in nectar of love spread redolence & gleam bright .
How precious they are How eternal they seem To bloom a poem on stratum of divine .
