The Girl In Red

A red hot siren they said
Like I am a glowing light
Not a woman with eyes bright

A red meaty feast they said
Like I am a dish stuffed tight
To delve into when dark sets the night

Like I am a drink to quench their sight
Not a woman of fearless wight

A red blooming rose they said
Not knowing my feisty might
That guards the inner fright

A red hot siren they said…

    Very powerful images Yamini. It’s an excellent poem that reveals the mean-spirited visions of a population who cannot see what is right before their eyes: a truly beautiful human being who has feelings, who has meaning, who has strength!
    Thank you for sharing.

    Ignorant fools, not worthy in my sight.
