She was made to lie down
A thin ragged man with crooked mouth came to her
Legs spread, cold slippery object enters her
The man sinisterly pats her head.
A carmine silk cloth covers her
Head hangs low. Don’t look upward!
Footsteps getting closer.
The scent of a man –
Caressing her face.
Darkness still wraps around her
Fairly sedated –
His lips confess a linger
Hands and fingertips like hungry beast
Cheek to cheek
Breasts hardened –
Before them seated her in-law,
Presenting a white cloth of tainted patch
Red liquids represent her chastity
Caused by his deflowering act
A harem that housed gazillion concubines
Complicated relationships and
An institution to polish a woman’s scorn!
