The Screaming Silence.

The bedroom door closed

She flinched

He grinned

She shuddered

He smirked.


The bed conquered

She groaned

He frowns

She pleads

He pounds.


The six yards of clothing came off

She cringed

He smiled

She screamed

He moaned.


The bodies locked

Beyond the natural rhythm

An innocent body lost

With silence being her only cataclysm.

  1. I felt just what I felt when I saw a particular scene in the horror movie “Shutter” (won’t go deep since it would be a spoiler)
    It was cruel, disgusting, throat wrenching, yet shut in silence. Beyond me, how you put it in words so simply, but it reminded me of that scene, and that shook me to the core.

  2. I cry inside for what the woman is having to endure. A one-sided pleasure that is causing her pain both physically and emotionally. Such a powerful piece.

  3. Hair raising!! So well written Moushmi!
    A lost body and a battered soul! The soul – which can never recover! The body – probably! How lust and greed eclipses everything – the love, the pain, the consent, the soul, the respect – all just vanish in front of them… and seeing the monster gratifying and satisfying himself…smiling…unmindful of the broken soul in front of him! And the victim – timid, stabbed, bloodied and seeing her oppressor in front of her – smiling!! Like being killed slowly with a sword and looking into the eyes of the killers … the happy smiling eyes which though seem open – yet are closed! And this is the sad reality of innumerable homes!! And of innumerable such monsters who roam outside wearing a cloak of respect and morality yet being a devil in own houses!
