The poetry of Megha Sood

Alone

How do you measure the
incongruence in your life
a life askew and
unstable and mounted
in a haphazard manner
like the pile of the unopened letters by your door
your failed ambition
piling inside your aberrant mind
you did try to sort it
but failed it,
miserably
Your dreams are untethered and
hanging by the threads of
flailing reality
you did learn the sailor knot
Didn’t you?
But you never have mustered the courage to
brave the raging storms in her life
your house is pristine
and windows are clear enough
to let the silence
seep through the broken frames
You feel the sliver of the
forgotten sunshine which will warm
those obsidian corners of your heart
left to be rotten
like the milk from
yesterday night left on the kitchen top
now no longer usable
those silken drapes are flirting with the winds
and cunningly whispering those
last broken words
before the
sunsets for another day
leaving you succumbed
like the words of a forgotten song.
