An Unwanted Pregnancy

Written by: FABIYAS M V

Her expectation exits
through the door of a clinic.
Doctor aborts her request.
Odor of rotten emotions
spreads on her face.

Carrying without marrying
is the mother of shame.
Thorns in society prick her.
Blood oozes out
of the memory lane.

Yellow pineapple juice,
she drinks in vain.
Rustic notions fail in womb.
She takes roads with pits
hoping for ‘jerking abortion’.

Embryo of tension
grows everyday.
Her thoughts sweat.
Worries and queries
bulge out of her belly.
