Best Bindu Vijayan Poems

Grey stealth crept on the innocent night
Preying down on her uneasy sleep
Predator warnings tolled their menace
A dark prelude to when sanity would flee

The stalker roomed into claim his stake
Licensed to hunt with the title he donned
A husband who was sworn in to nurture
On a contract that spilt blood every night

Proximity would rain blows that blinded
Submission would color revulsion darker
Her fragile body would stiffen to endure
As her steel mind sprouted wings to escape

Sun dappled streams to tow fun-filled days
Waterfalls to sing haunting lush green tunes
Spaces she belonged to, places to go
Soon she believed, long before the end....

    It can be so hard and punishing to become the object of violent obsession, to become the targetof lust's anger, it can be so painful to survive victimhood, but every hero must learn this horror. You are a Heroine to me Bindu...J.A.B.

    So on to better things right, about my Midnight write yes she is a beautiful black lab and shep mix, all black with brown eyes, more like a child than a pet, you see Bindu a year ago I had a heart attack and collased in the shower, no one heard me cry out except my Midnight, she climbed in the shower and put her full weight onto me until I woke up, she seems to know me better than myself, for if I'm ill she never leaves my side, so she deserves this write. cheri by the way I love dogs two.

    I understand this more than I wish to confess, my first husband was a very mean man, but I was raised even if was a mistake of a marriage you were bound to tough it out, but I didn't want my two daughters to think that men were aloud to treat a women like this so I made up my mind to get out before he ended my life which could have happened. But my second husband whom I meant years later has been my salvation, he has always been my life partner and so much more. I got lucky cheri

    "Proximity would rain blows that blinded Submission would color revulsion darker Her fragile body would stiffen to endure As her steel mind sprouted wings to escape" These fours lines are beyond epic, Bindu. :) Beautiful masterpiece. Nice and twisted beginning to end...I liked how this poem was wrapped up and started to unwind quickly.. it was a good read. Will read more of your work soon...must catch up with sleep soon! :) The rhythm is flawless in this piece. Nicely written today! -sinc., DWB

    Charmaine's response is spot on..too many suffer in silence...a dark prelude to when sanity would flee..a most powerful line Bindu...

    A very powerful write, Bindu. I can feel the fear and the deep emotions coming through in your words. I am sure that this was not an easy subject to write about. I admire you for being so bold! Amazing work, as always!...Thank you so much for the great comments on my latest poem!

    This is rather beautiful. Splendid and fascinating

    Bindu.....I did read this several days bac and it so disturbed me. My dear....I hope that this isn't true to life..for how can one endure this on a daily basis? It breaks the heart. You have captured what is the reality for many women....May they find coping mechanisms to survive. Hugs

    A very sharp write, love the power of the line "As her steel mind sprouted wings to escape" it speaks volumes, a shiver just went down my spine, hugs and loving thoughts of freedom xxx

    very ominous tone this one has. Great imagery for that!!

    This is a very powerful poem Bindu. I really detest men who abuse their women. or children. I would dispel them from this planet. Hope this write doesn't apply to you...Great read....Peter

    You had my senses held strong in this writing. Incredibly done.

    I am reading Nettie s comment and yes it does relate to sleeping with the enemy..This is very profound..painful and deep.I hope she finds her freedom.Unfortunately many suffer abuse in silence.Touched my heart.

    bindu!.. gosh, this reminds me of ' sleeping with the enemy'.. a gripping story that provokes the senses to deal with fear... sensitive images bring this to reality of everyday life... incredible!..:) huggs

    Let us hope that there is a way for her to become empowered enough escape the clutches of fear, and despair. I will pray for her freedom from pain.

    Oh my, this one causes my heart to ache. No one should have to endure such a betrayal of trust. Using a marriage licence to hunt is an extreamly powerful metophor and play on words. A very powerful piece Bindu.

  1. Date: 11/18/2013 7:28:00 AM
    very intense powerful write I hope Bindu that this has not happened to you personally if so leave him TFS Shadow x smile hug
