Disguised Entity


She looked at me with imploring eyes

I looked away, one more time

She has no right to survive

I decided I must smother her

And leave her to die

For I knew, if I didn’t

Someday, she would defy

And reveal all my lies

Those till date, I had disguised


Under the shroud of societal validity

She must always hide

For I had no courage to change the tide

And divulge that inside this body of a man

A lively, vivacious woman wailed everyday

To be free from bondage

Of small human minds!


If only, she could survive…
