My eyes wanted to see a bright dawn,
You forced them to be down,
Searching my body for anomalies,
There were none.
Yet your eyes prowled around,
Seeking an unknown treasure.
That day I learnt to be shy.
My ears wanted to listen to happy sounds, Yet you forced them,
To listen to the sounds of your poisonous words, your predatory steps…
There were many.
On the roads, at shops, in classes, everywhere.
Thereafter I learnt to be silent.
My skin wanted to feel the soft petals,
You forced me to recoil as,
The touches were more bad, than good.
Good? Good hardly ever existed.
Gone were the harsh yet desirable pecks,
Of experience, of life,
All that remained was,
Your cruel touch.
That moment I learnt, how to harden my fist.
I wanted to smell, the aromas, the fragrances,all around,
I inhaled the masculine scent,
While trying to get away from you,
Books idealized you, societies justified you,
They proved me wrong.
However I knew, there was only one wrong,
That day I had learnt that I was, I am right.
Now, I want to taste annihilation.
I won’t stop until,
I witness your destruction.
I am getting nearer with each step, don’t you dare worry.
You think, it’s your victory.
It is the apogee of your illusion.
Tomorrow,I’ll be there,
To mark an end, your end.
I won’t be shy this time, nor will I be silent.
I will harden my fist, to shatter the walls,
You built around me.
I would then rightfully claim my victory.
Yet, do you know what the sad part is?
You’ll keep thinking, your thoughts and actions can still control mine.
