THE VICTIM !!

The raindrops as fierce as stones on her,
The thunder louder than her loudest screams,
The darkness darker than that bloody night,
She stared at the forest which was ready to take her in.
 
She sat there, staring at the puddles of water,
Getting mixed with her own sweat and blood.
Her whole body now shivering of the pain and rain,
Getting shudders every time she tried to remember.

                       *******************

It was only that morning she left her home,
Wearing her most cherished red dress,
Coz it was her sixteenth birthday today,
And a teen birthday is a celebration – all day.
 
She trusted him blindly and everyone countered.
Little did she know that trust always had a twist,
So, there she went with her trust, to celebrate-
Without knowing the twist hidden in the tryst.
 
Startled she was, to see him transform,
From the gentle and kind soul she loved,
To the fierce and brutal hunter that he was-
But waited – to pounce – for the right time.
 
He hunted her down –
-Like a doe being hunted by lion.
He tore her apart-
-As simple as a leaf being torn by a thorn.
 
It was over. It was all over.
She lay there abandoned along the side,
Of some road that led to a dark forest-
Stiff and unable to move in the dark.
 
She had no idea what happened to her,
Nor did the people surrounding her.
She heard faint noises of them murmuring,
Of what to do next.
 
It was already dark and to add to her misery,
A sudden shower from the above.
But at least the crowd let her alone,
As getting wet was more a trouble than helping.

The raindrops as fierce as stones on her,
The thunder louder than her loudest screams,
The darkness darker than that bloody night,
She stared at the forest which was ready to take her in.
 
She sat there, staring at the puddles of water,
Getting mixed with her own sweat and blood.
Her whole body now shivering of the pain and rain,
Getting shudders every time she tried to remember.

                       *******************                                 
 
She stood up, trembling and feeling terrible,
Helpless and wounded she stood there for a while,
Her mind now in turmoil of confusions,
For  she did not know if she was dead or alive.
 
She dragged herself into the forest,
Not turning back – to see the questioning faces-
Of the crowd watching her but staying away-
And decided to never to return – if she survived.
