Vermilion Hues


It was the festival of colours,

And she stood there,

Shy, Pink, Radiant,

 A young bud,

Ready to blossom.


Little did she know,

Of those predator eyes,

Eyeing her, Seething with lust,

His face, a Vermilion Hue.


He smiled,

His dirty yellow teeth,



She cried in vain,

Her voice muffled by the cacophony,

Of the oblivious crowd,



She prayed to  all the known gods,

Doubting their existence.

Whom she had offered prayers and rituals,

Through Saffron Clad brokers.


The pain increased,

Her eyes filled with Black.

Waiting for it, to get over.


She crouched in the corner

Unable to move

There was a cold feeling,

Between her legs,

That too, a vermilion hue.
