Reminder – Megha’s World

First Published in Vox Poetica

Time is a gentle reminder of you

a sepia stain on my white blouse

Time gently scrubs you

and yet you are here

/always here/

like a nostalgia

a whiff of that strong aroma

in the middle of the street

which blanks you mind

and numbs your senses

for just that freckle of a time

your memories are

always present like the

my favorite childhood song

on the tip of my tongue

or the fleeting glance of my love

in the crowded room

enough to satiate my desire

for my love, too young

Time sit still like that blackbird

on my window sill

we give each other company

a stranger of sorts

an unwilling companionship

With every breath carved from my chest

I lose a moment to the time

Like those vintage records

needle scraping the surface

birthing the music sublime

A wait too…

I am a Social Worker by day and an artist/writer by night. I use the written word in an attempt to make sense of the secret worlds and dysfunctional dynamics that lurk beneath the facades of our daily interactions. I am not sure how my writing styles are characterized, nor am I overly concerned about it. I am immensely enthusiastic about music and often connect better with songs than I do people. I also have an intense appreciation for quality wines and whiskies, frequently consuming them in excess. I like things that smell good and struggle to manage the symptoms of a life-long relationship with depression. So, why "grumpygorman"? Spend some time here and find out...
