The Darkened Furrow...

by Kunal Samadder

The Darkened Furrow...

Being frightened by the hollow of sound

Percolating from everywhere else,

I found my guts sinking in the dusk,

But my dormant spirit still ran through the undulating ways in the dark.

I heard the screaming of my child,

Getting drowned in infinite terror,

Kicking my womb, and trembling in horror.

I fought breathlessly in motherly act with the demons of the life,

to keep the innocence inside alive.

But I was defeated, again & again

Could sense the ghostly silence

Emphasized over my dwelling sorrow,

I felt the impetuous flow of the blood,

Running through the darkened furrow.
