Inside Her Mind
..... Amin Ahmad Chaudhury
They know her, smiled whenever their eyes metShe grew up right in front of their amazing eyesIn a four inch short and thin velvet skin tight topAs restless naughty as squirrel, flying like swallow Kissed by thousands affectionate on her rosy cheeksClimbed on many a shoulder old and youngWalked holding hands of loving parents dearWent to bed listening attentively the fairies tale Day by day she grew up, her beauty took the hueBrightest red red rose she full moonlight glow Deep sea eyes rose petal lips tulip cheeks blushingSmiles morning ray of sun, paces like a queen The young charming boys of the locality thoughtWhen she will grow up, having countless schemesShe their most legible dream girl, ready for proposalBut she shrunken into herself, fearing of sabotage Fear of the nails of vulture, sharp teeth of hyenasTormented her red rose heart, fear of hateInstead of being loved always, shuddered sheNever thought of beauties in nature surrounding her. Those who know her not, exclaimed, ³Oh dear GodWhat a great beauty you created, replica of HeavenWhen shall we be able to hold her loving hand.´She ran in fear without looking at their charmed eyes. News from different sources pained her muchSerial killers, deceived girls, unhappy divorcesIs it a human society ? She thought to herself ³Brutalising, raping what pleasure does one hold´ She hid her face, heart cried, screamed in dreamSometimes a gun a knife sometimes beside her bedLove lost, restless days and sleepless nights ruledHer maiden black Laura laughed at her despondency ³Why on earth you doing these, bad things are hereBut how many good girls behave as you do alwaysYou coveted by many bright young prospering boysThey need you they want you they love you you know It is a moonlit night go see its charm and beauty Love passion union light shade all you find thereIt will open your eyes heart you come back to normBe a loving girl adorable and have faith in human"
