The Glass Bangle

Being a Woman



triumphantly surging


riding the blood red waves

dallying with each nerve ending.

pushing. punishing.

The soft pulsing heart

vulnerable, unprotected

hacked to pieces.

Scythes of anger, neglect and despair

shredding it with deep cuts

that bled love.

The pain sped forward

up into the grey cells

vanquishing every frontier

leaving splashes of grisly matter

churning up memories

corroding the good ones

underscoring the rest.

The battle was lost

she awoke to a new day

with blank eyes and

a wounded mind.

Wiped clean of everything

that mattered

left with nothing

    Okay…so the fact that a lot of us thought that this was a reflection of real life is actually a mighty big compliment to your writing πŸ™‚
    So take it! πŸ˜€

    At first, I was worried and then I read the comments that it’s not about any personal experience….thank God!
    And those words definitely struck a chord!

    It leaves a feeling of emptiness within. Excellent portrayal of emotions Anjana.

    Gut wrenching. I hope this is just poetry and not mirroring your own life.
