The Nape of her Hair | Mid Night Diary | Ashi Kalim

The Nape of her Hair | Ashi Kalim

She was meant to fondled
Loved and caressed
But you held her nape
Moved through her braids

Did she transgressed ?
Marched against patriarchy ?
Or against anarchy?

The radical history
She only changed
But you held her nape

She is a Pandora-box
Full of love, life,
Butterflies and of babies
She isn’t hoax
But you held her nape

If you leave her
She’ll only rise
As a Phoenix
In the sky
From perpetuating oppression
From abuse
From despotize
She’ll overthrow
Her realms of identity

She can’t be vexed
Nor tyrannize
But you tied her to
Customs,
Rapes,
Sexual pleasures,
Pyre
And Fire

Ah..why you held her nape
Let her hail
And only together we can prevail!!
