“Only If I Could” by Arati Banstola 💫 #BraveWrites #wisewords #StarfishClub #ThriveTogether #WritingCommunity @CoffeeandaChat1

Only If I Could”

It’s the same old days:
The sun is shining brightly,
But the room is still so dark!
The room is still so dark,
As you drew the curtains,
As always!
As always, you don’t know
And don’t wanna know,
Whether it’s day or night!
But I know,
I do know that it’s noon;
And I’m wondering,
I’m wondering on the wall
Of your room,
Whether it’s dark because of
You dropping the room into darkness,
Or because of that man-
That old lousy man,
Who keeps on coming to this room-
This cold dark room!
But we both know,
We know that it’s not
As cold and dark as
His heart!
I can hear your heartbeat,
Louder than the
Tick tock sound of mine;
I can feel your breath,
Longer than the
Constant knock at the door;
I can see you shivering
And crying and
Cringing and being scared,
But you don’t see me!
It breaks my heart that
You see the time I show you,
But you don’t see me
Crying with you;
You hear my tick tock sound,
But you don’t hear me
Telling you not to open the door;
You keep on looking at me,
But you don’t look at me
Insisting you to take a step;
You just don’t see me!
And again,
Again you opened the door-
You opened the door,
And let him grab you
And your breasts,
You let him tear your clothes
And strip them off,
You let him take control over you
And your entire body,
You let him unzip his jeans
And push himself deep inside you,
You let him do everything
He has been doing since the day
He told you that he loves you.
He told you that he loves you,
Just like he has always
Been telling you;
He told you that he loves you,
Despite knowing that
You don’t love him back;
He told you that he loves you,
Despite being of your
Father’s age;
He told you that he loves you,
Despite having a wife and a son
At his home.
Yes, the same home
He had just come from!
I wish I could fell off the wall
And hit his head,
Before he pushes your head
Against the wall;
I wish I could show the time
Running out too fast,
When he watches me to
Ensure that your parents
Aren’t coming back from work;
I wish I could encourage you,
When you try to tell your parents
About everything their friend
Has been doing to you;
I wish I could stand up
And speak up for you;
But I feel so helpless,
Just like you!
But the difference is-
You choose to stay silent
Because of your fear,
And I have to stay silent
Because of my inability.
Only if I could speak up for you,
Oh darling, only if I could!
