ANXIETY (a poem)

Katie Kay

Feel it through your veins,
The mighty rush of your blood:
An emotion undulating and spreading,                                                 A virus that is you and no one else.

Your heart, palpitating like a drum,                                                       And your lungs, wings like butterflies;                                                 Your stomach in knots, and hands
like oil: Feel it roil right through you.

You wait for the perfect moment,                                    …

a melancholy song

The Lonely Author

a melancholy song

outside my window
a bird sang a melancholy song
of infinite beauty and endless love
her lyrics resonated
like a gentle percussion of bubbles
popping in the recesses of my bones

she serenaded me
you will never see the stars
if you fail to peer
into the galaxies of her eyes
why wander the world
when you haven’t ridden a gondola
to the frontiers of her soul

the bird sang of orange sunsets
and skies forever blue
her song reminded me
there can be no true happiness
if I have everything
except for you

Keep it alive

Word of the week –  

escapism – (noun) – habitual diversion of the mind to purely imaginative activity or entertainment as an escape from reality or routine.

Synonyms –

fantasy, reverie, romance, fancy, imagination, woolgathering.

Escape into dreams

Close your eyes and open your mind

Build castles in the sky or on the sand

Sometimes you have to open the door

And step out of the real into the imaginary

It is like a pressure valve that needs to release

The pent-up steam in your life to ease the strain

Escapism is not a bad thing if it’s not a habit

It needs to be indulged as a special treat

Once in a while, occasionally and not daily

We have enough dose of reality in regular days!

Megha's World

These walls are closing in
my dreams into small debris and shards
piercing my soul
As you step on them
and crush them into million pieces
never to be salvaged again
My squelched heart,
suffocated dreams,
are now
dragged along with yours
giving comfort to
your broken soles
I now understand
I was fervently trying to figure out
trying to make sense of it
on all the wretched nights and day
those powdered
dreams of mine
have a purpose
as they roll under your feet
cushions and paves your way.
