Pages of Told and Untold

By Nitusmita Saikia

Contributing Author for Spark Igniting Minds

Unbound tonight

A few are seen; some are unseen,

Partly this diary is a little open and a bit intact,

It is the fortress of a woman's heart.

A tale a thousand years old

entrapped inside fear and domination

A raped life is unbound tonight to exert!

Lurking behind all familiar looks,

hate engulfs an existence unto death,

Existence of a raped girl or a woman

At times a child; sigh...!

suffocating all emotions hateful tears’ hate falls

Hate for all; faith erodes silently in humanity

Life crumbles under all hate ultimately!

Who cares if they live or die..!

She is raped and loses every right,

Let's not talk about this hurting social vanity

Replacing all the stars,

which they could have had a few in their skies,

Like the blood stains here and there

On a torn face ranging from soul to eyes!

Words stumble in voice; Lips mumble

Eyes are frightened and feeble body shaking,

Pages are torn, faded inks

It's a raped diary full of cries and yells

Right from the womb to womb again,

Born to get torn!
