Flinch

written by: Megha Sood

My soul flinches at the

very mention of your name

My fingers tremble in the night

as I recall the nightmare

recursively

like a bad movie

stuck on the reels

I want to scrape the

memory of yours

want to mask it with the

empty memories of

my life

the stench of your

sickening presence

has suffocated me

for so long

has left an abyss in my soul

even if I’m blinded

by the goodness

of the light surrounding me

you still can manage

to cast a shadow

and eclipse my heart

with all the pain

I have been

hiding all along

the shivering, trembling

and those seizures of

incessant pain

never seem to slow down

the gut-wrenching

feel of your touch

which scarred my soul

has left a deep impression

which I so want to ignore

Not a single day passes

when I wish your

existence should

be a glitch

in nature

fixing the mistake of

an excuse for a human you are

and everything I hope for

becomes pure and true again

and I forever wake up from the

the bad dream that you are.
