Survival – Megha Sood

I’m so pleased to announce Megha Sood’s debut on HL&M!

Heretics, Lovers, and Madmen

Have you noticed the slow
cleaving in my backbone?
the seamless transformation
the branching into my thousand self
like a sapling breaking out from the
blind seed. I’m sprouting
I am growing
breaking out of this cocoon.

Growing like a medusa
this fecundity of myself
breaking out into the
thousands version of me
morphing into shapes
perfecting the art of topiary

I’m shredding myself
shinning into a million version of me
like a reflection of the summer sun
on shards of broken mirror

this fecundity
is my survival extinct
to handle the plethora of emotions
life throws at me
I’m learning.
I’m growing.
