Behind The Veil

Behind The Veil

1 min 13.5K 1 min 13.5K

Draped inside the golden skin

She carries a mutilated heart within

With every new soliciting hold

Her old being gets crippled and sold

Confronting those eyes, giving a lewd leer

Creeps through her infected blood

Mingled spirit of fury and fear

The fright of surrender pounds her heart

For someone’s pleasure, stings her every part

Bound in the hands of nasty pimps

In the ocean's abyss, all her hopes sink

In the bleak corners of the brothel, die

For escape, unceasing yowl, the never ending cry

Inside the four walls, for help no answer she finds

‘This is your fate’ the echo reminds

No one can empathize her pain

She is just a part of stigma and disdain

Behind the veil, comes out a wail

Who should have the real shame?

For a work, she is been coerced into

Why whole life her ‘name’ has to carry the blame?
