From An Eye - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal

From eye it silently dropped
Heart beats as if stopped
What did make me to bother and think?
Why was I upset and slipped to sink?

What makes human heart to bleed?
When fallen to human treachery and greed
When you are forbidden to feed
To a new born but compelled to forbid

It troubled me a lot when I read headlines
It was attracting attention in sidelines
She was there posing me many questions
A big question mark for mother daughter relation

I was innocent like her when raped by relative
Strong disillusionment and resentment to be indicative
A bad phrase never to be appreciated in any form
I was subjected to torture and came in life like storm

She was reminding me of her isolated life
Today she is someone's beautiful wife
With kids and all pleasures at disposal
But alas! Dreamt of my reentry or arrival

I am not at all with peace in mind
How many nights I have cried for her to find?
I only prayed for her safety and long age
To shut self in one place like cage

I am not a dreamer bit not a hard core too
I had always looked forward to explore
Each time I moved ahead but only to fall behind
I feared that everything will be taken as unkind

I shed tears not because I was safe
But I have missed her throughout the dates
Many years have passed and left behind
Now not to remind of me being as blind

I am woman and not made of any strong metal
I have taken years to get down and settle
I am happy to see her column with all eagerness
What a strong relation to reveal and find happiness on face?
