What made me- how I am!

..

..

Did I ever thank you enough-
For all the trouble that you embedded on my ground?
Making me shiver like the tree,
All of whose leaves had fallen and withered..

Have I ever expressed my gratitude-
Towards you- for being so hostile?
For scratching my bleeding wounds,
-Till it left an ugly mass of pus behind..

Do you know how grateful I am-
To you; for pouring that poison in my vein?
Turning me into a venomous sting,
Wiping my Life out of my being..

I have become as resilient as a rock-
Shining like the brightest star..
I fly around like the careless wind,
Spreading my Mind all across!

..

Walled

..

..

..

I wanted to paint it lilac,
You painted it a mundane Cream..
I wanted to hang serenes,
You put up the pics of our wedding..

I wanted a Wall beside me, One who would stand by me-
Dealing with the things before they touched me!!
Here I am, left with the Wall I had asked for-
Echoing my sorrows back at me.

You had hugged me tight
I had quivered with fear
The Wall would tell all
How I’s held against…

As I now look at the Wall
It looks back at me…
I ask him what went wrong
And it dumbly 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 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..!!
