This piece... I know I haven't done justice to it..
It's for all those little innocent children who become the objects of lust in the hands of their own so called protectors - be it a father, uncle, aunt, teacher, or a priest... and so on.
The innocent child/teenager becomes the victim of sexual abuse without a hint of realising that s/he is being abused. Even when the act comes to light, it is hushed to save family honour, or of the Institute... My near and dear ones too have been the victims of such heinous act, pushed the matter under the carpet, for honour, self preservation (which is an irony in itself) and what not. It becomes an open secret which everyone knows yet no one wants to speak up. The numbers among my close circle (across generations) itself is shocking. Awareness, reporting is definitely on the rise, but there are still tens of thousands still suffering.. and it's heart wrenching.. ________________
Here I've used Fire as a symbol, first as a source of warmth/protection, then the destruction, and the Pheonix in the 3rd para a symbol of resurrection, renewal, a new beginning..
I remember tagging the chapter of our union as the best in my entire book. Each of it's words were written with lots of love and they were really close to my heart. I used to re read every time I missed your presence near me, recite the words again and again to fill the void within me. But then I know I was doing more harm to myself than I ever imagined and it wasn't justified totally. You choose to put that closure and I kept mentioning you again and again. Well I am done today, I burn to ashes all our moments, burnt the pages that had your name, guess what I didn't cry. I was done with you, I let you go free from my novel, give you the freedom you always wanted. And as I see the pages are flamed, the story of ours is never gonna be the same again.
