Centre Stage

by Megha's World
scott-umstattd-137399-unsplash.jpg

We are at the center stage
hounded and cheered by the million hungry eyes
ready and pumped to get
a piece of the entertainment
of their life
to get that taste of the bloodied reality
and voyeuristic truth
we have been gulping down our throats
through all this life

Grin

by Megha's World
yingpis-kalayom-133680-unsplash

Grin and bear it
bear the trickling pain
the harrowing death
which slowly reeks
from every single pore
of your body
pain and suffering
is a common trend
but empathy and care
is a phenomenon, unknown.

― Pericles

They say confessions
can absolve you
They can make you pure.
You will be pristine
as the seraphic soul.

Potter

by Megha's World

“She is a beautiful piece of broken pottery, put back together by her own hands. And a critical world judges her cracks while missing the beauty of how she made herself whole again.”

― J.M. Storm

A ball of sagging clay in your hands

taking shapes

between the ridges of your fingers

getting knead by your

bony knuckles of the long taloned hand

Attention

to make you see my way

I’ll be calm as a pacing river

flowing gently towards its

known fate,

Putty

by Megha's World

“Even the most
beautiful
of the stars
are taken
for granted
night after
night.”
― Veronika Jensen

My heart is 

broken,

smashed,

squelched

countless

times

broken,

shattered,

splintered 

in million pieces

it has suffered enough

no amount of assurance 

and a lesson in life 

can keep it 

from 

shredding,

tearing,

breaking

How do you survive?

Memories

by Megha's World

matheus-ferrero-304611-unsplash.jpg

Soft murmurs in my soul

those fleeting whispers

which drowns the cacophony

of my tumultuous mind

a break, rip and a tear

here and there

and emotions come flying

out like the caged birds,

One missed step, one perfect dance 
One missed shot, one and only chance 
Life is all…but one fleeting glance.”

Autumn-Takes away a piece of me

by Megha's World

bruno-ramos-lara-199044-unsplash.jpg

I stand here

barren,

naked,

those leaves on me

keeping up the

decked up pretenses

trying to satiate my

inconsolable heart

not to lose hope

and lose that spark

Question

by Megha's World

“The only real conflict you will ever have in your life won’t be with others, but with yourself.”

― Shannon L. Alder
zohre-nemati-466895-unsplash

Everyone,
everyone around me has the same prying eyes
the same question,
looming over their heads
for the eternal time

They are always in awe of me
how I have kept the held high
broken and crumbled
after the heartbreak
but still soaring in the sky

Sojourn

william-recinos-460798-unsplash.jpg
I’m picking scabs
pieces,
leftovers,
little-little tiny pieces
stuck here and there
slipped and
stuck between the cracks
trying hard to get to them
using my bony fingers, knuckles and
what not,

Perfect Storm

by Megha's World

“With a tide rising in your heart
and a gale rushing in mine,
we brewed a 
perfect storm together”
–Megha Sood

tom-barrett-346220-unsplash.jpg

Our wild emotions were brewing
slowly and surely
simmering and rising to the surface
ready to be spilled
poured out of our hearts
where it was becoming
a fruitless task
to keep us apart

Journey-A Question

a miracle of sorts
trailblazing your dreams

how softly it made me blush
left my heart
feeling so sanguine
