Introducing Megha Sood “My horror movie”

My horror movie

That nihilistic pain
simmering in the back
of my eyelids,
or sometimes lodged
like a toothpick in my throat

grabbing my head
like an incessant headache,
numbing my senses
rocking me to the core

that pain is the reminder of your memories
the miasma of incessant pain
as it dug it’s knuckling deeply into
my and kneads me violently
shaking me to the core

giving me the creeps
forever and more
before I give in
always and again
this unbirthing of childhood fears
and the panics which kicks in

oh! my relentless heart
looks for the company
which is soothing
your old gelid fingers
that gut-wrenching
and soul-numbing pain
leaves me in the fetal position

that numbing pain
I feverishly want to get rid of
this whole hamster on the wheel routine
has left me aghast
like a horror movie stuck
on the reels.

  1. You’re one of the best writers I know. I can’t tell you how happy I am to have you join us. ❤ And I love the piece. This is a totally silly interpretation, but this made me think of how horror movies calm me down when there's horror going on in my head.

    • That is such a kind thing to say Henna. I’m humbled by your words.and I can totally relate your horror movie fascination. Even I like them a lot except for the fact that I scream the loudest in the room..haha
