Dark side


The room was dimly lit.
She couldn't see anything though.
Her hands were tied.
She felt dizzy. Confused.
The lizard from the ceiling was looking at her.
She was scared.
She had no idea, how did she end up there.
Her body was aching but she couldn't move.
Her legs were tied too.
She heard a sound and somebody entered the room.
The touch in her legs scared her.
She couldn't see the face.
Her legs are untied now and the hand between her legs made her feel sick.
She couldn't shout. Her lips felt sore.
She felt the disgusting touch in her whole body.
She wanted to die.
Death wasn't kind to her.
She got gang raped.

In another world,
People said, the girl was too modern and character less and must have eloped.
Her would be groom smiled that no one noticed.
A whole family committed suicide.
They lost their daughter 2 days before her marriage.
She was gang raped.

A strong poem that effectively conveys the trauma of being raped.

Confused whether to appreciate your writing or to feel sad for the emotions it carried!

You injected the pain of the victims onto the souls of whoever reads this.

Kudos!
