Trigger warning

This post is in response to the daily prompt Warning

Megha's World

goh-rhy-yan-472415.jpgClick clang!
Tick tock!
this poem is a trigger warning;
you better read it with the
valiant soul or else you
should just
stop reading

The pain is too numbing
and too graphic for
your meek soul to bear;
it is only a snapshot of the pain
the tip of the ice burg
I’m  ready to bare

Oh, wait !!
don’t let your
feeble heart take all that pain;
Don’t show it to the kids
they won’t be able to retain

Click Clack!
Tick tock!
the scars slowly turns
into memories
make yourself brave to see;
for it will turn your
dreams into scary
nightmares
pretty easily

Tread carefully
and don’t you dare
look back;
you might see the ghouls
lingering in the doorways
ready for the attack

Your gentle kind-hearted soul
will be left
soaring with the pain
to see blisters simmering
in my soul
boiling again

Tread carefully
don’t falter
in…

String of broken promises and false hopesmakes our storyA succession of liesbuilt on the pyre of the dead truthsbecause you didn't keep the promise

 
You surrendered to the patriarchyYou stirred and dissolved all the hope and lovein your infected vial of angerYou cannot save me againbecause you didn't keep the promise

 
Don't you dare ask me to look at the blinding light againpushing again me against my boundariesasking me to breathe against my wishesbecause you didn't keep the promise

 
You kept the stinking liestucked under false pretensesI rose from the ashes just to be burned alive on the pyre againYou can't  keep weaving the same web of deceit againDon't you dare because you didn't keep the promise

Why do we feel empty inside?Why do we feel hollow inside?stripped of our emotions why do we feel numb insidewhen the emotions are raging anger and pain are roaringand all the feelings are screaming andsquealing as hard as they can. Why do we feel hollow inside?When there is a tornado coming our wayready to rip us off and throw awaywhen there is no place to hideAnd no moment left to regret. Why do we feel hollow inside?Why can't we feel the pain ofhis body lying naked in the coldhunger of his soulwhy can't we feel the thorn stuck in his foot? Why do we feel hollow inside?when the whole world is burning aliveand there is only pain and strifewhere wombs are scratched cleanand no moment is left serene. Why do we feel…

Your Memories

Come read Shantanu ‘s beautiful ode to his parting love!

Ckonfab

Your memories are engrained on my soul,
layer on layer,
like writings casted on stone

And no matter where I go,
or what I do,
from time to time
your reminiscence crosses my mind,
making my senses go blurry
and my vision go blind,
as I think all those little things,
and those precious unforgettable signs
that you have unknowingly left behind

Like when you used to look away,
pretending to be furious,
yet watching me from
the corner of your eyes

Or when you refused to speak,
no matter how much I coaxed
but give away
when I announce
I have something interesting to say

The sound of your anklet
the coil of your tresses
your silent humming of our favorite song
you standing against anything wrong

All those memories
I have treasured deep inside my heart
locked in a treasure box
sealed in…

Inkling

Megha's World

Do you have the inkling
the faintest of the idea
how even the silhouette
of your warm heart
wrapped around my
cold frigid soul
can instantly warm and thaws
my frozen feelings
lying in the eternal slumber
for a million years
to the core

Do you have the faintest idea
how your warm soothing
honey dipped voice
chases away all the
insanity in me and
renders my
soul
pure

Do you have the faintest
idea how the fleeting
touch of your fingertips
can ignite the
deep down desires in me
and rattles me
to the core

Do you have the faintest idea
how letting you go
strips and splits
my heart in million pieces
shards piercing
the deep corners
of my languid self
and abject life
and leaves it so sore.

Do you have an inkling of what you do to me, anymore?

Gluttony (Gula)

This post is in response to the daily prompt Swallow

Megha's World

This is the second poem in the anthology of poems based on the Seven deadly sins. Do read the previous ones too, if you haven’t yet.

Gluttony(Gula) – Similar to greed, but gluttony is the action of taking too much of something in being indifferent to others.

Gluttony is an emotional escape, a sign something is eating us.
—-Peter De Vries

eaters-collective-172258.jpgIncessant gulping
and swallowing down
till you are filled to the brim
and choked at the heart
mouth stuffed till you can take no more
and yet you are starving your soul
the desire for all the delicious food
your slithering tongue demands
stuffing your body
still feeling empty in your heart
the gluttony, you are filled with
starving others to death
snatching and grabbing
from the
needy soulful heart
yet you never regret.
Gluttony, a deadly sin
makes you devil from within.

Split wide open

Megha's World

weronika-marcinczyk-397805.jpgI’m split wide open
for you to see
my soul is sliced in half
for you to
scrape pieces of me

I keep changing shades
to hide in the
layers
of the darkness
You still find
me and hunt me down
with so much hatred

Hiding in the plain sight
my doppelganger
stealing my identity
leaving me naked

You keep stealing me
leaving the puzzles
unfinished
I keep rummaging
to put me back together.

You can rip me apart
and tore in shreds
feeds your hungry ego
and living in dreads

Your voice chases
the sanity in me
and leaves me dangling in the
realm of reality.

You can split me wide open
but you
cannot steal
the light within me.
