The forgotten one…

Painting by Seema Pillay


“I feel my heart ache, but I’ve forgotten what that feeling means”

– Chuck Palahniuk

Tears roll down like flowers from her eyes

She must have been through a lot

What looks like bunch of flowers to you

That might be all she got…

She holds the burden in her strong shoulders

Yes bravely, she has fought

The depth of her wound is beyond any measurement

She is tied to her pain in the hardest of knots

Her heart bleeds and spreads the love

But the fresh cut wounds, beginning to clot

She stands tall to remind them of her

About her life – Half misused, half forgot…
