"Be strong enough to stand up for yourself and say a big no to people who mistreat you." I said, to my one and only best friend during lunch one day.
"Yeah,Yeah my iron lady. I will say a no and will definitely call you to deal with them for hurting me." She replied with a smile on her face.
"Sweetheart,Where are you?" I heard the love of my life calling me from behind.
"I'm here love" I replied back.
"You know he loves me a lot and he is the best life partner I can ever get. He cares for me like a rose. He is the prince of my life." I said to my friend side hugging the love of my life.
How I wished I could tell her the truth
The way he loves me ,just like a doll, making me do whatever he wants.
Yeah he treats me like a rose, crushing me under his shoes , plucking the petals of my dreams and hurting me beyond repair.
I wish I could tell her about the beast residing behind my prince charming's face.
I wish I could show her the fresh red marks of that slap on my cheeks hidden behind tons of makeup.
I wish I could show her all those fresh burnt marks which I was hiding behind my full sleeve clothes.
But I can't
Because I'm tied,
Tied with a rope called nupital chain around my neck.
The stamp of vermillion on my forehead, is the symbols that I belong to him.
And not to forget that one page marriage certificate,
Which is his license to treat me the way he wants..
The license which gives him the permission to rape every night,
Hit me, love me , mistreat me and what not.....
How I wish I could be strong enough..
Strong enough to fight for myself.
To fight for my lost pride
To fight for my self respect
And most importantly
To fight for "ME"
