MERIN ELIZABETH KURUVILLAThe beat's dark and dismal. They've erased all of danger's traces
From a field of unanswered questions. I see the same faces
Yet not knowing what lie behind them,
What could be the thoughts that rove,
Masked by saccharine smiles,
Concealed by the heavy drape of love?
Closed doors wall me into streets of endless night.
Tiresome nights of warmth and not a hope in sight
Of breaking free from safety's dart, from love's sharpened knife,
While trapped in the invisible web of this sheltered life.
From my shell, I see around me, their undesired weeds sprout,
When they raise shade by shade of love, then I'll forsake youth,
