A WOMAN DIED (dedicated to Hemangi)

 


A WOMAN DIED

 

(dedicated to Hemangi)

 

-       Tapan Kumar Pradhan (India)

 

Each of his tries was a lie

First with those roses red

Fragrant with promises

And then came the kisses

One after the other

Pregnant with desire

 

Parting the tender petals

Soft like Kashmiri silk

In his fingers held wide

 

Then came the harder part

With manhood unzipped

He then ripped

 

hard

 

so sad

I knew he was that bad

 

That day I died as a woman

Then burning within myself

I slowly turned to sad ash

Never to show my face again

 

To the world

Which for me was dead

And collapsed

 

Never take his name again

Let him also die

In his hour of grief

unknown unseen

 

Like I died

Eons ago
