Tender silence enveloped the atmosphere
Its fragrance reached miles away
A story slowly unfolds, beyond time
Flames of fire licked her skin
Alas! Her eyes bathed in fury
Her soul was cleansed
From the dirt of men’s venomous thoughts.
When arms of reality stripped of her beauty
She found solace in the shadows.
They might drown her in shame
But they can’t mince away her dreams.
In the valley of death
She waits for each of them;
Clad in red silk
Chewing there hideous thoughts,
Eager to spit it on them
As they are ruthlessly crushed under her feet.
Faraway a silent witness- l stand frozen,
When her bloodshot eyes
Catch me staring.
