Poetry: Megha Sood

Megha Sood

We are Poets


Poets are shameless with their experiences: they exploit them.” 
― Friedrich Nietzsche

We all are trying to touch the bottom of the madness
the absolute end:
to visualize how far we can stretch our insanity
and how much it can
take the pressure and survive
till it breaks down and
shatters into small bits of
craziness and false identity

We all are trying to get to this bottomless pit
scraping and digging our way down
building our own graves
like a scared mouse,
clutching its way down
blinding running away from the reality

We are all trying to
get to the end of this abyss
the pandemonium;
to save our souls
living in the dreadful reality

We let our parched quill
scratch and pull at the scabs
to feel the essence of words
buried deep in our psyche

We let it soak in the crimson blood
of our proverbial existence
running deep in our fecund veins
mocking our mortality

We are poets,
We all are trying to
touch the bottom of the
madness,
one which gives
voice to our deep soliloquy

We are poets,
an epitome of insanity.
