My Death Is a Great Red Pen, Correcting-Kindra M. Austin

Read this brilliant poem from one of the talented authors I’m proud to call my friend – Kindra Austin.

Heretics, Lovers, and Madmen

What you want, I ain’t got; and

goddamn,

I have the sinking feeling that it’s happening

again,

as night is falling down upon me. I submerge,

accordingly—

await my death.

My death eradicates mistakes I’ve made,

and saves.

My death is a great red pen, correcting

according to

Vodka,

on top of Fibromyalgia,

on top of Anxiety,

on top of Depression,

on top of Rx medication.

*

Two years dead,

and I’m still fucking seeking

mother’s affection.

I beat my breast,

claw my throat,

shake my insignificant

fists.

I cry confessionals ‘til Hell won’t have ‘em.

Self love

Megha's World

ThichNhatHahn.jpg

A warm and a tight hug 

can do wonders I have heard

It can lick and suck all your pain

for those who have eternally suffered

It’s that magic potion

that elixir

that have worked wonders 

in the present

and in the past

that secret ingredient 

which has turned the sourest 

of the situations 

into a loving welcome

a bright start.

A deep and welcoming smile 

can make you forget all your worries

it strips you off

your anger and pain

and the stubborn suffering 

you have been carrying

I have learned this all the lessons in the past

but forgot the 

most important of all

to start

first

by hugging my own heart.

–Megha
