THE SHANGRI LA OF US

by thereluctantpoet

THE SHANGRI LA OF US - 2
By Charles Robert Lindholm

Life Is So Fast Paced
Anymore
And Time Seems So
Fleeting

With Us
Rushing Around
In Our Own
Little Whirlwinds

The Roses
Go Unsmelled
Along With The Coffee,
Too

We Are Always
Leashed Up
To Electronics
And The Whole
Wide World
Around Us

While The Important
And The Lovely
Are Left Unattended
And Not Admired

I Want To Stop
Our World
From Spinning
Around Us
In A Vortex

HOLDING YOU IN MY ARMS - 2
I Need To
Hold You
In My Arms

HOLDING YOU IN MY ARMS
And Look
Into Your Eyes

LOOKING INTO YOUR EYES
For You Are
My Anchor,
You Are My World
And All That
Really Matters
To Me

We Need To
Protect
The Shangri La
Of Us

So We Can
Grow Old
Together
And Still Be
In Love

Sojourn

by Megha's World
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

Fleeting romance

by Megha's World

“The very essence of romance is uncertainty.”
― Oscar Wilde

Oh! how fleeting it was
how softly it made me blush
left my heart
feeling so sanguine
a feathered touch

Writer’s block

by Megha's World

“Biting my truant pen, beating myself for spite:
“Fool!” said my muse to me, “look in thy heart, and write.”
― Philip Sidney, Astrophel and Stella

kelly-sikkema-401675

When you hit a wall
a big wall;
which breaks your convictions
and shatters it all
that big wall of
angst, pain, and insecurity
which mocks your artist
and its withering creativity

The language of love

by Megha's World

mayur-gala-487.jpg

Speak with the language of love.
–Rumi

The language of love
needs no words, no script
it flows from my heart to yours 
with no gates or doors;
I can feel the vibe in the air
I can feel the love
in my veins
as it flows;

Try “Love” once

by Megha's World

Try something new in the month of Love.

fabrizio-verrecchia-195644.jpg

They say you are hopelessly romantic
nothing can come out of all this waiting
waiting for a glance or a passing touch
They say bare your heart and soul
bare it all
if you want the love to come your way
at all

Brotherhood

Inkling

by Megha's World

Do you have the inkling
the faintest of the idea
how even the silhouette
of your warm heart
wrapped around my
cold frigid soul
can instantly warm and thaws
my frozen feelings
lying in the eternal slumber
for a million years
to the core

Time’s up

by Megha's World

“I am small.

So are stars from a distance. It’s all a matter of perspective.”
― C. Kennedy, Slaying Isidore’s Dragons

brooke-campbell-44085

Accusations,
I have heard many
insults you have hurled

You have unbirth
many excuses to
hide under
the veil of your
mistakes and

Mirror

by Megha's World

People say eyes are the mirror to your soul.You get the clarity of thoughts and emotions if you look deeply into someone’s eyes. It stores all the hurt, pain, joy, ecstasy you have experienced all your life. But still, you spend your whole life surrounded by people around you who don’t have any clue what going on inside you. Sometimes we wish for a such a mirror to exist which can reflect people true intentions and emotions and sometimes you just wanna hide.

christopher-campbell-30253

Eyes my faithful mirror
Heart is a bleeding art
Dancing through this dance called life
Got so many scratches ..torn apart

The heart knows

by Megha's World

Have you ever try to fool your own heart? Sometimes we do.Sometimes we try to distract us from the sad truths of life. Sometimes we utter white lies to ourselves so we can ease our existence in this chaotic world. But you know, the heart knows.

It knows everything.

will-oey-253882

You cannot fill the gap of an empty heart with the feelings of fulfillment and abundance;
The heart knows how it feels.
You cannot fool the heart with treats and surprises;
The heart knows all our tricks.

What is a poem?

by Megha's World

What is a poem? I call them little bits of creativity scattered here and there in your mind. Hiding, waiting to be discovered, waiting to take shape in form of words.Every time you trace the path, it changes its shape.Taking new twists and turns, it gives an entirely new meaning to the emotions stored in there.

A Poem as I call it, a complex emotion in a compressed manner.

vladimir-tsokalo-254237

A Poem is like a walk
A walk inside my mind
In all its nooks and crannies
where I’m storing the sunshine
