Shankaran Kutty Poems
(This is based on a true incident. Of how a mother asked her lover to kill her own husband and child, so that they can elope and lead a life together. he has been given capital punishment and she, double life terms. But irrespective of all that, the incident created a huge shock, as I still cant imagine how a mother can kill her own 4 year old child for carnal pleasures.) .
What is it this thing called love
Isn't it the presence of the Lord
The spark that lights a lonely heart
That from one heart to another, poured
And of all the love that fill our hearts
Alone she sat in the battlefield
Her husband’s head in her lap
At sixteen, a mere trifle of a boy he was
His face serene as in a nap
“Arise my dear, you have to see your child
Who grows in my womb”, she cried
In a battlefield strewn with death
No one heard the young bride.
