Comparison

Megha's World

“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;
so I love you because I know no other way

than this: where I does not exist, nor you,
so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.”
― Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets

Let me tell you what you mean to meyou are that feeling of homemy tired feet feelwhen they step inside thecold streama wild brookafter walking a whole day

 
You are the soothing feel of the sun onmy face incrisp winters

 
You are a waft of that fresh breezewhen  I open the window to spring mornings

 
You are that soothing smellthat petrichorwhich rejuvenates me from within

 
You are the feel of dewdrops falling…

Nostalgia

Megha's World

“how sad and bad and mad it was – but then, how it was sweet”
― Robert Browning
pascal-brokmeier-482474.jpg

Hidden between the pages
of my favorite book
or lying
as crushed petals
between those folds
scenting and filling up
my senses
will all the nostalgia
all the days and nights
there have been
and many more

Sleeping quietly as wrinkles
between the sheets
or engraved as
freckles on my skin
counting your memories
it touches and
leaves me
gasping for more

Every time I  inhale
that fresh whiff
of that cologne
rubbed off my skin
I’m being pulled
towards you
feeling alive evermore

Stretching and
arching my back
balancing my love on my
toes I gave
myself to you
once more

Floating away in your embrace
and counting the steps
locked in our gaze
the whole day comes
alive to me
when I take a whiff of
your old favorite tee.

Fabric

Megha's World

“Some people weave burlap into the fabric of our lives and some weave gold thread. Both contribute to make the whole picture beautiful and unique.”
–Anonymous

annie-spratt-215744-unsplash.jpg

Between the threads of reality
and threads of our vivid dreams
we weave our fabric of life
embellish it with our achievements
flaunting around with pride
and we don’t want any stains on it
we want it pristine and pure
draped in the gossamer of our desires
we just want to live
one day more
But as the time flies
the fabric is tugged and pulled part
at the edges
and seams are coming out
no matter how much you save it
how much you avoid
there are people who will
weave love and passion on it
the silky smooth touch
a touch of the cashmere
mixed with works of filigree
which wraps our souls
and gives it meaning
But my love,
don’t you ever forget
there…

Poetry feature in Indian Periodical -Apocalypse

Megha's World

My poem has been featured in the latest issue of the Indian periodical.
Please read it here

meireles-neto-336081In search of a lifetime
I crossed lots of moments
Hopped over too many memories
and ran through many fears

In search of a soul mate
got too many scars
left withering in pain
left with my bleeding heart in vain

In search of peace
wiped a lot of tears
shared a lot of grief
shards cutting through the soul

In search of salvation
my soul is roaming endlessly
healing and bleeding continuously
waiting for the tourniquet to be tied

Yet the search never ends
The journey still remains
Here I’m standing still
Waiting for the apocalypse to begin.

Pay It Forward 7-4-2018

The baristas at Go Dog Go Cafe are big fans of Pay It Forward Thursdays. We think it is a great opportunity to give a shout-out to another writer who has wowed us or creatively inspired us.  However, Pay It Forward Thursday has not been getting a lot of love lately, which we think is a shame. Dear reader, you are losing out on some great writing! We’ve decided to shake things up a little and the baristas will be reblogging our Pay It Forward picks for the week directly onto GDG Cafe so you don’t miss out on our favorites.

We like this idea so much that we will also reblog the posts you think were the best thing you read this week if you drop a link below. You are invited to post one link to one specific post (600 words or less please!) from someone…

Someone Told Me I Was Queen- Kindra M. Austin

This is super awesome.

Sudden Denouement Collective

Someone told me I was Queen of _____
So I hit the pavement with
nothing but the
shoes on my feet and
two middle fingers.

I followed black wings and
learned how to prey.
I communed with rivers and
willows and  
winds of change.
I defied a mountain and
slept at its summit.
I made the day blush and
trained the night to genuflect.

Someone told me I was Queen of _____
So I hit the pavement with
nothing but the
shoes on my feet and
two middle fingers.

I returned home,
not Queen of fucking Nothing;
I returned
Commander of My Heart.   


Kindra M. Austin is an indie author (her books can be found here, a founding member of Indie Blu(e), and a writer/managing editor at Sudden Denouement, Blood Into Ink, and Whisper and the Roar. A Sagittarius Valkyrie from the state of Michigan, she likes craft beer, and…
