Broken Spirit


I try to reconstruct the temple you broke

I take the broken bricks

Keep it one by one

Whatever I do it still remains unfinished




None admires this broken boat

I try to paint it anew

the rusty rods I clean

still none cares

it occupies the dry shore

everyone stamps it in disgust

even the waves push it aside


Oh ye men its the very soul of mine

you destroyed mentally raping her feeble spirit

she lies there lifeless

but yet alive for her days are more

she wishes someone would touch her wounds

Apply love potion on her hidden pain

where in her dreadful moments would dissolve
