Poetry Break: Archan Mehta marilyn l davis two drops of ink a woman's tale

___

A Woman’s Tale? 

 

Silently,

She cries

Alone

In the privacy

Of her room

In the heat

Of the night

But she knows

Not why she cries

But something deep

Inside her suddenly dies.

Nor does she know

What she wants

From her life:

She appears confused

Like one of those

Lost souls you find

Roaming around

Here, there and everywhere

Like panhandlers or street urchins.

She never bothered to

look within and discover

Her true calling:

Ultimately.

She turned into

Superman’s fortress

Of solitude like

A bird trapped

Inside a cage

But secretly

Longing for release.

Pray, who will

Rescue her?

An old flame?

A social worker?

A friend? The police?

A concerned neighbor?

There is no way

To turn, right or left:

Hence, she falls

Out of step

And we feel sorry

For her but can’t

Help her. It will be

Over soon, you know,

As the sun and the moon

Rise and fall

Like drops from

Heaven or hell:

Well,

We still can’t tell.

As her condition

Grows worse,

Another woman finds

Her place,

She is thus replaced,

A woman fallen from grace

And this drama continues

Without a full stop

At the end of a sentence.
