Love: The Permutation And Combination Of Love The Union (Radha-22) - Poem by Subrat Pradhan

Do not step outside today
ordered my mother-in-law
You can't
Told my sister-in-law
Solitude invaded my surrounding
Darkness danced before my eyes
As if someone took away
The platform from my feet.

As if my this life became meaningless
From the very moment
One who is accustomed to
The things the day before
It to happen
Who will put him in the grave
Who will put him to death keeping
Him in temple without a door
My inner wears got drenched with sweats
Should I ask you
Why shall I not go outside?
And why can't I?
I could not get the words
I had to be within
Myself within so many
Incalculable dissatisfaction
As if I don' know
How you call me a concubine?

And you turned
And threw yourself
In the last room
On the wastes, excreta
Gathered by the mice
You slept on it
And never to rise.

You had known
No one would wake you up
In the night
May it be your husband
Your sister-in-law or father-in-law.
Tears flowing like rivers
Sighs heaving within as tempests
At the very moment
You had remembered me a lot.(incomplete)
