Daily Prompt : Shame

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Fearful Symmetry.”

Pick a letter, any letter. Now, write a story, poem, or post in which every line starts with that letter.

‘Sindoor’ on forehead

Smokey kohl lined eye

Shy hesitant smile

Spotlight’s on the Bride.

Stumped and surprised in a few weeks time

Shameless in-laws

Subtle absurd demands of

Shiny car

Stacks of money

Spotlight’s on the bride.

Spineless groom

Scheming in-laws

Scornful looks

Sadistic remarks

Spotlight’s still on the bride.

Screams muffled in pillows

Silence on lips

Smudgy make up

Societal pressure

Secluded from loved ones

Surrender, surrender in mind…….

Remembering the plight of thousands of women who are harassed, emotionally tortured in India for dowry.
