A Distraction - Poem by Geetha Jayakumar

Distraction may or may not
Lead to obsession
But can lead one to commit any thing
As if one got obsessed with.

One beautiful girl
Travelled by bus
Everyday
Caught in the eyes of a young
But handsome man.
He never bother to see her face
But he got obsessed with
Her long, thick and shinny hair.

But everyday he
Started travelling
In the same bus
But took a seat
Often behind her only.
Only Just to see her beautiful hair.
He noticed her both timings.
The girl unknown of this
Travelled everyday.
This happened for months
And one day
He just took out a scissor
And cut her full beautiful hair
And took in his hand.
The girl panicked
And he was arrested.
But girl was studying in college
And stayed in hostel
For a week she was just frightened.
Then she never shared to her parents
Too far will be upset.
When she returned home
Her parents shocked to see her short hair.
There after she never grew her hair..


Obsession can do anything!



Purely an Imagination
Just a story....

    Distraction is some sort of interruption........Geetha...........which may lead someone to be positive or negative
    depending on how it is taken......and if obsessed with may lead to infatuation.....which again is a relative term....
    So it all depends on person behaving positively or negatively..........well composed on a good stuff........ (Report) Reply

    In my view nothing is wrong in being obsessive as long you can find a creative way to express those feelings. Liked this poem of yours. (Report) Reply

    I guess that is better than raping her and leaving her for dead on the bus. But they should still hang him anyway. What? Too harsh a punishment? Rape is rape, cutting her hair was rape. (Report) Reply

    Obsession with the hair has been there for long. There is a famous poem about hair, titled 'The Rape of the Lock' by Alexander Pope (Popular Poet#61) published in 1712 which is available on PH. Nice poem. (Report) Reply
