my shame~by Nutan Sarawagi



Inspired by Ziauddin Bulbul

my shame

In the sari
I saw my life flowing in it
As I ran swiftly to clothe it
It hid behind my shame hiding in it
It was my sari then why was I hiding in it
In my shame to hide my shame in it
I unwrapped my sari slowly with my hands
as it came closely unwrapped in my hands
In the mirror as I looked at my myself naked in me
My shame in me hung in me
Gone off me
As I wiped my shame
Looking at my beautiful body god had given me
I no longer looked at my shame in me hugging me
In my shame all my shame leaving me
It was my body then why is it ashamed of me
I asked my body
In me it clung to me
In its soul gleeming in me
My body in my body
leaving me
