Remembrance

Megha's World

First featured in the Little Rose Magazine, July 2018

architecture brick wall bricks building Photo by Pixabay on Pexels.com

The old cuckoo has been strangled
rolling in dust
for its coarse and harsh cries
are bringing back the
memories
too hard to bear
too painful to hear

The cobwebs in the old piano
have marked the
crotchet of my memories
with the missing
touch of my lover’s fingers
devoid of its symphony

The broken chair and
cracked mirrors
are storing the reflection
in its cracks
my tongue slaps my cheek
to hear the broken verses
and lost songs
from the past

Those folds in the
sheets
holds the warmth of our
supple skin
Too fearful to
lose the memories,
I’m letting the wrinkles
sink in

The air is heavy and laced
with your memories
in this old dusty room
those specks of dust are
dancing and dangling
intoxicated by the love
of our old moon.

And how the body heals-Megha Sood

Come read my latest piece on Whisper and the Roar.

Whisper and the Roar

liliana-pereira-708261-unsplash.jpg

And how the body teaches itself to heal

to get up 

shed off the scars

the sullen time has left behind

rub off all the cobwebs 

of the stale vapid moments

nesting in you for time forever 

taking shelter in your mind

feasting on your memories

like maggots

and sucking off the light 

that was once so divine

And the how the body teaches itself to recover

by crying profusely 

pouring out the tears

chaos of the lonely soul 

that deep lamentation 

that once gone sour

and how it springs that fountain of elixir

stemming from the depths of your heart

to cleanse you

once again

and to baptize your sins

marking you as a nubile

a soul apart

And how the body fight and shuts itself down

cocooned within itself 

sitting cross-legged in the dark 

hunched by the pain of the 

deep remorse

and sitting in complete silence 

mute and numb to the core

those screech and

Fatal attraction – Megha Sood

My words today in FVR based on the July theme Love. Come give it a read.

FREE VERSE REVOLUTION

“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 depths 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

Poetry published in the Vita Brevis Magazine- Impressions

Megha's World

How do you feel when the poetry magazine which you have been in awe of since the day of their inception and have spent countless hours reading their poems and admiring the talent of the writers published on their site has agreed to publish your poem?

I fell elated and top of the world since the day I got the email from the editor, Brian confirming the acceptance of my poem.

Vite Brevis is inspired by the saying ““Ars longa, vita brevis (art is long, life is short). This line moved me the very first time I saw it and every time I read their poems.

Their aim is to publish work that shows a keen awareness of not only art’s beauty and longevity but life’s toils and finiteness.

Please read my poem  Impressions and leave your precious comments.

Happy blogging!

Introducing Megha Sood “My horror movie”

My debut on the Sudden Denouement. So excited about this. Go take a look.

Sudden Denouement Collective

My horror movie

That nihilistic pain
simmering in the back
of my eyelids,
or sometimes lodged
like a toothpick in my throat

grabbing my head
like an incessant headache,
numbing my senses
rocking me to the core

that pain is the reminder of your memories
the miasma of incessant pain
as it dug it’s knuckling deeply into
my and kneads me violently
shaking me to the core

giving me the creeps
forever and more
before I give in
always and again
this unbirthing of childhood fears
and the panics which kicks in

oh! my relentless heart
looks for the company
which is soothing
your old gelid fingers
that gut-wrenching
and soul-numbing pain
leaves me in the fetal position

that numbing pain
I feverishly want to get rid of
this whole hamster on the wheel routine
has left me aghast
like a horror movie stuck
on the reels.

TO THE LOVER OF MY SOUL

Come read this beautiful rendition of a love letter by a talented poet Chuck.

Go Dog Go Café

By Charles Robert Lindholm

 My Dearest Darling-The Lover of My Soul,

As I sit here writing to You after all the intervening years since our time together I am still so amazed and thankful that my memories of You and Us are as vivid as the day we made them. 

I can see You as clearly as when I gently held Your face in my hands and kissed Your lips so tenderly every morning.  The most exquisite greetings to a morning I have ever had in my life.  Ah, but then all of the memories that I Treasure most were made by You in my life!
