Caged Wisdom

Facing leaps and bounds of life

She thinks of by-gone days

and Carbon black nights,

late night texts and miss-you fights.

Her Caged wisdom in lustful vibes

His Beauty standards;

fair complexion, sexy eyes.

He desired

a woman having thunderous- thighs.


She questioned herself

If she was a woman of his choice?

Losing weight

polishing body

straightening hair


sounding seductive

was never

her choice.

She was living an impressive lie;


she learned

her desires


strong wings to fly.


A poem by Shweta.
