The Age of Innocence

jasmines adorned her soot hued hair
some dad’s little princess, wasn’t she?
a sari the pride of a cherry draped
carefree in cheap gold embroidery
faux gems serve to fill the void
a void ciphering into another
some mum’s dream come true alas
cat calls welcome her as she dares
to roam amongst the fortunate us

she is the queen of the streets
her strides, magnificent and bold
enchanting, enamoring, enticing
despite the weather so cold
‘if he were here, o if only he were here,
i would seldom walk one step more’

her thirst for love, an unfulfilled desire
her clothes are often torn apart
many a man has left his stench
but not one dares to steal her heart
‘won’t mum teach me to sew?
wont she come to purify –
the scents of sins stacked within?’

her eyes moisten reminiscing
the ghosts of an era bygone
yet she seeks a path; a fresh, raw path –
unexplored, holding promises galore
wiping her tears, she seeks to return;
a return to the Age of Innocence

‘dad, mum, where are you?
the hide n seek is past due
i wish no more to breathe
this stench of other’s sins
i want to smell the warmth
of the purest form of love
so, take me in your arms
as I end this wretched bond’,
so saying she ends her beat

Vinnie said...

Sawan saar,

i read an article abt an NGO working for the upliftment of sex workers. apart from the medical needs n educational needs of their kids, this NGO tries to bring the so-called 'Fallen' women into mainstream society - by marrying them to a client who is interested but scared because of societal influence.

the NGO has already married off many succesfully, n for the first time these women shared their experience of receiving love, respect, dignity, etc. and a will to have a dream for themselves n their new family. if u read that, surely there will be a few tears in ur eyes too!!

i wonder what happens to the ones whom no client felt interesting or worth loving...this is that poem which came from my wondering :)

Amazing lines I liked this a lot...

Lancelot said...

@ kartik


how about 100th daa???

ஆளவந்தான் said...

test

Scattered Thoughts... said...

I have never seen more immature behavior than this.. I thought of remaining silent but then decided against that... To be honest, I don't care a damn if this is a real fight or prank but in any case there should be a level which is expected from young educated guys like you two.. and this is not a place to do the same.. may be vin does not mind all this but there are other readers for the blog who might not be on same level as yours.. Anyways decision is yours and vin's but next time before dragging some one in to this and calling him names.. please think twice.. and never ever try to suggest me what to do..

You Know Phoo said...

Yes I'm George Weasley and Lance is Fred Weasley.. he'll die soon :P We r YOU KNOW POOHs

You Know Phoo said...

Sorry ST.. Actua Going by the title THE AGE OF INNOCENCE, V had an amateurish fight.. Soon when puts the age of maturity, v will give up our silly fights!!!

Lancelot said...

@ ST anna

Respected Sir,

As I was suffering from immaturity I fought with Kartik immaturely, sorry. I hereby undertake not to fight with you in your premises hereafter. Please grant me two days leave only.

Thanking you,

yours faithfully,

Lancelot

Vinnie said...

karmanna said...

:(( am very sad ..

and i feel helpless and angered when some go back to the same profession even after they are rescued ..
social stigma ?
poverty ?
or what ??

(vins.. that was lovely one .. with all the feels ... five stars for u *****)

Vinnie said...

Karmanna Saar :)

thank u! thank u!

we as a society have pushed the vulnerables into the flesh trade and then ostracise them in the name of preservation of the pure ones!

P.S: i personally feel, i deserve 3 stars for this, 5 is too much!!
lekin dene wala bada meherbaan hain :):)
