Fatal attraction

Megha's World

“Mysteries of attraction could not always be explained through logic. Sometimes the fractures in two separate souls became the very hinges that held them together.”
― Lisa Kleypas, Devil in Winter


That insatiable thirst

which rises from the depth of my soul

and devours me like a wildfire

this incessant need

to be wrapped around your soul

like an unstoppable contagion

this is the fever which is catching on

I’m getting drawn in

I love your lies

and I can slurp your deception

till that last drop

which quenches my thirst

and satiate my parched soul

You can pretend it not meant to be

but I can see the swirl of passion

in the black of your eye

and like a laughter hidden in the trees

I can  find your fragments buried in me

that surge of emotions

my soul is tainted by the carnal desire

like a festering wound

Megha's World


This is where it was beautiful
This is where it hurts the most
This is where I made the
most pleasant memories
That is where I regret the most
This was there everything stopped
This is where everything
started to fester.
This is where the night became the day
There was where rolled another day
This is where my heart got lost
And this is where I got everything
and finally belonged
This is where I got ahead of time
That’s the moment I called
you mine
How much have you
pinned in your memories?
How much have you
saved them?
To turn over and glance at them
when you are nearing the end.

Blind Men

Megha's World

First published in Indian Periodical, August 2018

clem-onojeghuo-184787-unsplash.jpgOur whole life is nothing but a sine wave
the rise and fall of our deeds decide our fate
the crest and trough of our wealth
decides our relations and friends
The ups and downs of our life
decide about the strength
and grit in our character
and the lows and highs in the life
tests our faith.

Anybody showing you the mirror
otherwise is a bad reflection of reality
a pseudo-truth
a distorted reality
based on the dark and dystopian future
which will suffocate any
hope for your fragile
will prejudice your dignity

You are on a rollercoaster with no breaks
the speed and the place
where you stop
decodes your faith
so stop believing in destiny
and pull your own breaks
carve those lines in stones
let them see the daybreak

Cause no one can ever tell you

Lost in translation

Megha's World

“The quiet sense of something lost” 
― Alfred Tennyson

I’m lost in the translation 
wandering between the pages of  a book
hiding between the folds
and sitting under a neatly folded
dog-eared page
waiting to be pulled
I’m surrounded by the pages 
of my life 
and left behind in the
stories untold
that old shattered spine
of that dusty book
mirrors my life
I fervently crave for that 
intense fresh smell
we usually find 
in the binds of book
so new
so naive
I crave for that smell
which lingers on my breath
and gushes the memories of life
I rushed to forget
I’m lost in the folds
and the missing pages
where my story took a break
and can be found 
in those missing traces
That blotch of the ink
like a stain on my soul
hides the very essence of my life
devoured it whole
I’m lost in the translation
wandering between the pages

Spring Frost in Churchill, Oxfordshire

by Peter J. King

Sunlight thickens on the tower
that stands outside my window;
I can almost feel the limestone soaking up
the heat, like toast absorbing butter.

But on the village green that’s shadowed
by the church, the grass is white
with morning frost, and dogs and walkers
leave their trails of darkened prints.

A sudden squall of hail, and then again
the sun. Behind the tower, watery but clear,
a rainbow links the hills to either side.
Jackdaws rise together, scatter,
sliding down the icy air and up again,
out of the shadow, into warmer heights.

I shiver slightly, reaching for a log
to place upon the waning fire, and
think about the Earth’s slow, teasing orbit.


Frosty Sequel
by Peter J. King

Now, having paused, I must be quick.
I give my…
