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.
