Chaos

This post is in response to the daily prompt Noise

Megha's World

cristian-newman-364529The chaos engulf us in the daily grind
taking us down
It’s funny we survived this roller coaster ride
without getting of
without falling off
Should it not be a gentle and serene tide
that everybody hoped and wished for
But we settle down for this
In this rampant chaos, we call reality
We barely could hear each other
in this incessant, percussive sounds
We make us deaf and pushes us around
We barely could listen to our heartbeats
Our heads are spinning around
We are strumming to the drumbeat
Walking in unison
trying to match beats with the rhythm around
Within this rampant chaos
We tried to tune ourselves
to the magical Pied Piper
We are blindly going down
as we are going down
We are marching to the tune
We all are going down
tone-deaf to the symphony around us
We all are going down
Blind as a…

Tongue tied

This post is in response to daily prompt Grasp

Megha's World

kat-j-525332.jpg

I’m at a complete loss of
words
tongue-tied
unable to speak
as if I born into a foreign land
with no way to converse

I’m at a complete loss for words
with my mind unable to grasp
anything
can take a handle
at the verity of things
being uttered

My words are being twisted
misconstrued and remolded to
take a new shape and form
falling off the tip of my tongue
but unable to be reborn

My mind
a cauldron of
my thoughts and desires
where all the syllables
are simmering
on the fire

Yet here I’m
in a prison
of my own making
locked inside the cage
gulping and choking

These vivid dreams of my ashen mind
are getting born and dying
an untimely death
my inundate tales
of pain and love
are being long
forgotten

As I’m trying to give shelter
to these unborn voices
conjure up in my thoughts
to make them pure

falling in love with a poet

Come, read this and fall in love with a poet.

mylocalweb

the way words come together and bow to you

the way expressions liquidate and flow to you

the way your writings make the world crave

the readers surrender self and become slave

you are literary soldier of this classical space

the captivating exaltation embedded in place

I have not seen you yet I know you from ages

your literary image has filled my empty pages

when I confront you someday I may not recognise

but the smell of your literature will always suffice

this is eternal bonding that connects two hearts

thus the story of falling in love with a poet starts

Wonder

Watch this amazing video to show in a graphic sense the scale of the universe, a true wonder.

parallax

via Daily Prompt: Wonder

Stevie Wonder, Wonder Woman (especially Lynda Carter), the Seven Natural Wonders, are all engaging in their own right. But the video feeds my real sense of awe – the wonder of the universe. In the 1920s Edwin Hubble was able to prove a long held theory that the universe was expanding and wasn’t static. More recently, scientists have discovered that the universe is expanding at a faster rate than originally thought.

The video attempts to show in a graphic sense the scale and form of the universe, a true wonder to captivate the mind. It certainly brings a sense of scale to our galaxy, and to our planet. But it doesn’t diminish me or any of us, rather, it captures the sense of how wonderful it is we are even here, and that we are part of something that is truly amazing. That thought drives me…

Fragrant

Love is fragrant.

Megha's World

Have you ever associated any peculiar fragrance with someone you love?
Just a little whiff of it can make your head turn. Your mind pictures the image of them as if they are present in that very moment with you.I wonder if they have flowers in their soul. Do you?

sarah-gray-351935.jpgThere are flowers
deep in my soul
makes my being
So fragrant evermore
It gives me the everlasting
musky perfume
the sweet and warm aroma
effervescent
which fills you
intoxicates you
penetrates you to the core

Till you are soaked
and drenched into it
brimming and spilling over
with an overpowering scent
and you are gasping
asking for more
I’m a growing addiction
you just can’t deny anymore.

Cause there is only
So much love
you can take.
Mi Amor

Cocoon

Break the cocoon…crack the shell

Megha's World

“and when all the wars are over, a butterfly will still be beautiful.”
― Ruskin Bond

chandler-hilken-356880Break the cocoon and crack the shell
come out of it alive and refreshed
you need a transformation
you need an inevitable change
you need to come out of the chrysalis
so you can be colorful again

Break the cocoon and crack the shell
the claustrophobia is setting in
and you need to shift
to make some space
you don’t want to be shoved into a corner
or cordoned off in a pen
you need your emotions to be alive
you need your feelings to take flight

Break the cocoon and crack the shell
the tightness in your chest
your labored breathing
will stop your heart someday
you need to stretch your limitations
and broaden your horizons again

Break the cocoon and crack the shell
the misogyny, the patriarchy
the archaic rules
can’t keep…

Fashionable

Megha's World

nex6ki-312404
She walks along the empty corridorNo longer fear of being stalkedShe no longer hides her face

The paparazzi already stopped


She doesn't carry the caked face 

and the fake smileAnywhere, anymoreAnd hold her breath to fit in the clothesTape all her woundsSo that they can feel the beauty moreShe stopped wearing the blistersAnd can walk with long steps Can jump and squeal with joyShe likes what she sees in mirrorNot alone in a crowd anymoreHer voice can reach her heartNot stripped of her emotions anymore Not blinded by the lights And warmed up by pure loveShe loves being not fashionable anymore

The grey

Come read this shade of grey by this amazing poetess.

The Darkest Fairytale

So many beliefs
In heaven & hell,
Opposites planes
Worlds parallel.
Like a triangle
All sides connect,
People worship
None are perfect.
Heaven is too picky
Hell accepts all,
Even the angels
After they fall.
To burn forever
Or to live a lie,
I’m good & bad
I’ll be more lost
When I die.
I never believed
In black & white
So when I die
I’ll go to the grey
Inbetween the skies.

A Song With Many Voices: All the Lonely People

Come read this amazing collaboration by writers of BloodintoInk.

Blood Into Ink

kat-j-525336-unsplash

I have always been here, among the lonely people. Despite having people around me, my battles exist within my head and body. To you, I may look normal, but on the inside is a scene entirely different. My constant companions are sadness, frustration, exhaustion — even a fortified fortress to shield me from what the world has and could continue to do to me. Those walls isolate me from my family. The shadows are filled with creatures that know how to hurt me if I move too close. So, you see, I am one of the lonely people. But I am not alone.
Sarah Doughty)

All the Lonely People—

they converge,

invisible at intersections

of Life and Death,

strangely untouched by hands of those

simpatico.

How can it be that so many similar

do exist while lost

to one another?

All the Lonely People—

they are unalone, and yet
