In Your Embrace

Pull me into a warm embrace And up the beating heart’s pace For your arms are the only place Where the sorrows have no trace Where questions have no space And where emotions win the race…

The Woman Who Bleeds

For days every month I bleed For years and decades I bleed For the love of life I bleed For the duty of wife I bleed For my future heir I bleed For being a mother I bleed I turn a giver of life when I bleed But why am I dirty when I bleed?

Let Me Breathe

Trapped in my body I writhe in pain Choke me but what have you got to gain …Let me breathe in the rain, in the rain Beaten thoughts are weeping out my brain Like life sucked out and washed in the drain …Let me breathe in the rain, in the rain Tired with thoughts going…

A Sailor Sailed Away
