Secrets in the Closet

Bright red bangles reveal my heart’s fire

The Bindi on my forehead narrates my secret desire

The blue and white shawl I drape over

Hugs my skin to reveal its beauty that was hidden forever

Scars of a painful past converse with my innate demons

Oblivious of their discussion l behold myself without any reason  

As I look closely at the mirror

A roaring laughter erupts from my fascimile

The realisation of a woman trapped in a man’s enslaving carcass 

Shatters the rainbow fantasies of my fragile  mind
