  • Things read as poems/lyrics

    Whenever I post any of my entries here, some people seem to see it as a "poem" or as "lyrics". I wonder... how can any entries be read as either one of these? Might be for anything considered lyrical, it would have one verse repeated through or have it italicised like what I do, or maybe to do with the choice of words also. It might be easy for some to answer but I'm just curious. Then again, some of the stuff I posted since I joined might not be lyrical in some way even though I did intend to make it that way but, everyone sees things differently.

    Poem and song both are described as a composition of words with similar nature. The major difference between them is that a song is set to music while a poem is not set to music. Poem is a composition that is written or spoken for communicating beautiful, imaginative or elevated thoughts whereas song is written or adapted for the purpose of singing.
