Silence Of Shame - Poem by Pradip Chattopadhyay

Without your knowing,
Beyond your eyes,
Past all care,
Bereft of your understanding,
I cry.
I wipe the tears but they still flow
In the silence of my shame!
The hands I trusted decapitated me
And I have no fires to burn them down.
My bludgeoned body, blackened face,
Now abandoned in the darkest recess,
Shed tears and wipe them,
To hide from the world
An agony none can share.
My scarred soul cries alone
In the silence of shame!

(O Lord
instead of showing me the light
you left me in the eternal night)
