acid hurt

Acid attacks sadden. There are heroic stories of women who survive all odds after they are doused with acid for rejecting the overtures of some men, but it comes down to one thing- injustice. Injustice that human beings, particularly women, are so limited by the geography they are born in to.


don’t surround me

i am frightened

i disappear in my fear

words come out of my mouth


in return

a  ribbon of burn


sears the skin

i am skeleton

this is it.



no soul

no wings

just body

the pain.


motorbikes disappear

You get bail

You have your face

the illusion of something inside.


but hollow Man

you couldn’t scale the snake within

the one that hissed at your kisses

and hated your eyes.
