Poetry: The Deadlock

The poetry metaphorically talks about women's helplessness and man's might. Women often give in, unable to stand men's power like the leaf did to that of the wind.

The poetry metaphorically talks about women’s helplessness and man’s might. Women often give in, unable to stand men’s power like the leaf did to that of the wind. 

Try she did

The pretty green leaf

To hang on

But he was too strong

The robust wind

Determined

Adamant

Never miss real stories from India's women.

Register Now

Egoistic.

He bent upon her with all his might

And pulled her off

She shook… quivered… trembled

Begging him to let her stay

With her beloved

The old ragged branch.

But his need was greater

He shook with delight

As he took her

On a ride

Of passion

Of thirst

Of reckless desire

As she quietly succumbed

To his need and quagmire.

An idle tear left her eye

To touch a patch of soil

The ground was broken, bruised and dry.

The leaf heard something

Hoarse and wry

“Why do you weep, O pretty leaf?”

“You are but still green

See what he has done to the whole of me!”
