Second Chance – Megha Sood

My words featured on Free Verse Revolution for the monthly theme ” Chance”.


First Published in the Foliate Oak Literary Magazine

I’m etched in your memory

somewhere neatly rooted

in the crevices of your mind,

people celebrate the lost and forgotten


like a rusted bicycle in the ransacked city

down the back alley,

decorated with the bunch of magnolias

pristine and pure,

deserted still.


you walk down this road of melancholy

sadness neatly perched in your heart

pain is the deep stench,

carried by this stale air

heavy with the remembrance.


the pain of getting triggered

deeply rooted in the ashen eyes of

that fearful sparrow

frantically kicking out the

eggs out the nest

to keep that slithering fear

away from its nest.


your mind always waits

for the second chance

a sunflower waiting for its due

an old dilapidated temple,

waiting to be discovered

a hand to wipe off that dust.
