The Quest Continued...
I lie here naked, motionless & cold,
With my eyes moistened & swollen,
Like a corpse lying on the floor.
I was screaming for help but not audible & loud,
I wanted to rise my hand for hold,
But I could neither move nor shout.
Unable to open my eyes, I stayed still on the floor,
Feeling the muscle crushing pain in every inch,
Bleeding from places after being torn.
I know he was tearing me apart, tearing me within,
My breasts being crumbled as dough,
Being bitten everywhere & choked under chin.
I lie here naked, it has turned night to dawn,
My limbs even more swollen & hurting,
I fell asleep the same not knowing I m lying down.
The silence was scary & the screams within paused,
Only the sounds of my heavy breath I could hear,
Terrified of my man so sauced.
Frozen I was & felt almost dead,
I tried to move, get up, get wrapped,
I finally dragged myself to the bed.
"Get up! Get up!" I heard his voice, felt his slaps on my face,
"Why are you still sleeping? Haven't you seen the time?"
"I'm sorry for being late" I pleaded in all means & ways.
His favourite routine was this, to take a charge on his wife,
My love for him stopped me from leaving him,
Until the day I was threatened for life.
The foetus within was murdered in an act almost same,
I lost my lifeline, my baby, my hope,
And fell defeated in my life's game.
"No, we can't save her" the doctors replied,
Shattered I was in a trillion pieces,
Broken, scattered, ripped I felt, I endlessly cried.
I lie here not naked today but with the same pain in heart,
Being bitten & with swollen limbs I think,
Should I end my tale here or just restart?
"Don't give up, I'll save you" was my brain's request,
"I'll try my best" my heart replied,
And I'm alive, writing my tale with the same quest.
