Trigger warning-Megha Sood


Click clang!
Tick tock!
this poem is a trigger warning;
you better read it with the
valiant soul or else you
should just 
stop reading

The pain is too numbing
and too graphic for
your meek soul to bear;
it is only a snapshot of the pain
the tip of the ice burg
I’m  ready to bare

Oh, wait !!
don’t let your
feeble heart take all that pain;
Don’t show it to the kids
they won’t be able to retain

Click Clack!
Tick tock!
the scars slowly turns
into memories
make yourself brave to see;
for it will turn your
dreams into scary
pretty easily

Tread carefully
and don’t you dare
look back;
you might see the ghouls
lingering in the doorways
ready for the attack

Your gentle kind-hearted soul
will be left
soaring with the pain
to see blisters simmering
in my soul
boiling again

Tread carefully
don’t falter
in my lifelines;
don’t accidentally
put your finger
on my trigger
and make them alive.

I’m a mother of a smart and energetic seven-year-old. I started expressing myself creatively since the last two years. Since then I have been continuously inspired by events in my life and around me which has helped me in penning my thoughts. I’m an avid reader, loves to sing, an ardent lover of poetry and sometimes can scribble few lines too. Loves to dance in the rain, have an undying love for nature, can watch the beautiful sunset for hours. Love to kiss and hug my loved ones. I have worked in the IT field for almost a decade as a manager, worked crazy hours and traveled around the world. In that busy schedule, I never got the time to creatively express my thoughts. Now every time I finish a poem, free verse anything it fills me with so much happiness and excitement and a feeling to have created something of my own. I’m planning to post at least one creation of mine weekly. Lastly, a million thanks to all who visit, like or follow my tiny bits of creation. Every time you do that, I get to know one more beautiful person in my life and get the chance to see their creation too.
