Unshed Tears (Poem)

Updated on February 22, 2014

Unshed Tears

Betrayed by the one I trusted,

All my faith in God has busted.

My soul has shattered into pieces,

Yet the fire in me ceases.

My insides churn into disgust,

As I became victim of someone’s lust.

I hate my body more than I can convey,

All those scars shriek and say.

Why did it happen with me?

Why couldn’t I be free?

What can a woman do, when?

Her protector becomes a predator, then?

Am I supposed to quietly cry?

Hold back my tears and be shy?

What should I call the incident to be -?

When it was my own husband that raped me?

How to hold back all my pain?

How to face him, again?

How to hide all my fears,

And hold back my unshed tears?

Author's Note

The above poem is written by Mahak Goel. Copyrights intended. :)

I hope you like this one as much as I do. And I hope it could make you understand the view of a woman. I hope it touched your hearts :) Infact, what I really hope is.. that you will understand 'her' rather than criticize her. Becoz honestly, no one frankly knows what she goes through. Even I don't.

I am just an amateur writer, who tried to pen down some feelings. I hope I succeeded :)
Do leave your valuable comments. I love reading them.

      Beautifully composed. I'll admit my vocab is mind blowingly disasterous so I adored the effort you made to keep the poem simple with words but last me aake unshed ne dhoka de hi dia. But thats besides the point. The poem brought out the true feelings of a victim so gracefully. Brilliant work.

      @Shreyoshi Di- Awww.. Thank you sooo much di! I love you sooo much! :* I do try to keep the vocab of my poems, as simple as possible. Simplicity, for me, is always the right thing to go by. And you know how simple I am. Thanks a ton again, di. This poem is very immature, written long back! I am glad you liked it! :*
