I wanted to paint it lilac,
You painted it a mundane Cream..
I wanted to hang some serenes,
You put up the pics of our wedding..
I had wanted a Wall beside me, One who would stand by me-
Dealing with the things before them touching me!!
Here I am, left with the Wall I had asked for-
Echoing all sorrows and agony back at me.
You had hugged me tight
I had quivered with fear
The Wall would tell all
How I was held against it..
As I now look at the Wall
It looks back at me..
I ask him what went wrong
And it silently stares back at Me..
I had stood like a Wall,
Sheltering you from the Storms..
You stormed past me,
Leaving me stood like a wall..!!
Read Post- My 1st Marriage Anniversary. I had typed this verse before typing that post. My mind had made me write this 1st before the details were typed. What I had gone through, my thoughts and the after- thoughts; is what that post talks about..
This is about Domestic Violence, torture and cruelty that remains to be an inevitable part of most marriages even now.
I, My Marriage, and the Wall. How I had wanted a shoulder to cry upon; I am crying alright.!! How I had wanted to adorn the relationship with pride; how its existence still haunts me..

The Perfect Poet Award- Week- 29, September- 2010
The Wall had become my best friend ever-
Silently watching me through my tears
Here again- it returns to me all
A tremendous Fly after that sad Fall..!!
