The Silent Jasmine! - Poem by Rajendran Muthiah

When all of your classmates
drizzle smiles and hide guiles,
why you alone, Jasmine
bears the misery of a desert in your face?

When your neighbours sing and dance,
and fling the jokes around,
to fill the class with mirth,
why don’t you move your musical chord?

When your friends take snaps in parks
and bite nuts and snacks in canteens,
why you cute girl remains pacific
within the four walls of the classroom?

When I look at Jasmine with many a question,
her silent looks tell tales of tears and fears.
Suppose I ask her the reason for her mystery,
if her eyes become wet, I have no strength to bear it.

When I called her name to mark present
in the Attendance sheet, the next week,
there was no sound! ‘What happened to Jasmine? ’
To my query, her neighbors murmured,
“ She is in the ICU of the hospital
with severe burns on her body.
Love is lost between her and her hubby
for she has borne two female kids.”
The Providence is the cause of all these tales of love!
The pain of it can’t be shared to make the heart easy.
