Confession

Megha's World

caleb-woods-182648.jpg

It was a candid confession
when she told her mom
how it happened
and how did it start
How first it was
all game and play
and now it has turn into
a painful, hurtful thing
which is ripping
her soul apart.

How that voice
which evokes the
element of joy and surprise
now fills
her with fear
how she flinches and
runs to next door
or hides under the stair
whichever is near

How she has torn apart
all the pictures in
her family album
and have started
drawing the
scary things
all of a sudden.

How no matters
how much she listens
to the lullaby
it doesn’t calm
the devil within
they always have
a place to hide
a corner to sneak in.

It was indeed a candid
confession,
an honest one;
but everything
tuned into dust
and broke her heart
when she heard her mom saying
“I know, you are lying from the start”.

This post is in response to…

Loophole

Megha's World

anthony-intraversato-441229.jpg
I’m looking for a loophole
to get into your 
broken and closed heart
just looking for the ways 
how to get a jump-start
A smile, a look
or a full-on embrace
which trick might work 
and
which might solve the case
With that forlorn look
in your eyes
and your gait
of a lost wolf
seems to me like
somebody gave you
pain 
more than they took
Your eyes filled with
that deep sadness
evokes the darkness 
hidden in the 
shapeless clouds 
hiding the thunder
To live an empty life
seems to me a wonder
There should be way to
get across all that pain
there is a reason 
you looked back again.
