Story that breathes

I opened my eyes to the world of stories

Each guise is a story that breathes

Living tales of hundreds and millions

I read a few and felt the same

Different characters, dresses and scenes

Inscribed in altered words but all synonyms

Shuffle the sequence; shake a bit

After some reads; you can guess the game

All leading to a predictable close!

What’s the fun without some sudden turn?

Don’t want my story to be familiar stuff

I bet, can’t predict the words as you read

Unpredictable tales are my favourite ones!
