A Scarlet Woman.

With hidden aches

With pasted smiles

She pretends to shy.


With muffled gags

With screaming moans

She feigns to have her mind blown.


Biting the bullet

Her body, sold-

She attempts at being dignified

Rendering herself to be bold!

  1. Superb, deep and tearing into the soul to make the impact. I sat and paused in silence to read again, Moushmi. The pain faced by a woman has been expressed with such competence and tribute to those women facing the worst in everyday life.

      1. Yeah i could feel so…the rush to complete it!! It was just like when you are having a favourite drink out of an opaque tetrapack which is half-filled and ends as soon as the taste starts building up!! 😄😄 omg even my examples are related to food nowadays 🤦🏻‍♂️
