Metaphors are important to her. She wrote the poem Thundering, because it reflects chaos. This poem is written by Rubab. She writes under the pen name Wordchaos R.

About the poem: metaphors, metaphors!

Metaphors are important. At least for Rubab. She isn’t the only one. Poetry leans on metaphors, together with similes. This doesn’t only add some extra dimension to the poem, it is a great way to compare things. Or to make things more understandable for others.

In fact the definition of metaphor is :

A figure of speech in which a word or phrase that ordinarily designates one thing is used to designate another, thus making an implicit comparison, as in “a sea of troubles” or “All the world’s a stage” (Shakespeare).

For Rubab, it is like this:

I always use metaphorical words to write.

And she did in the poem Thundering. This poem is all about those chaotic moments, that manifest at one point in our lives:

Where, we roar louder within our own self with little significance to show the world. It depicts the state of a heart missing someone far and close.

Isn’t poetry a wonderful thing?! Read more about this poetess on her Instagram page.



It was rolling thunder outside the window,
inside my heart.
As I recessed to hope for lightning to strike,
To make me away from the storm of your thoughts,
I wondered which was going to hail; My roaring heart
or the autumn clouds.
