Diwali

Child-abuse

 

The little girl watched in wonder
For the house was lit up with lamps
The kitchen smelled of delicacies
She felt like a princess
In her new pink frock
And sparkingly cindrella shoes
She was happy
Daddy was home the whole day
Playing and pampering her
Outside the window
The sky sparkled with fireworks
She heard a voice behind her
Firm hands closed her mouth
She clenched her fists
Struggling to be free
Panic seeped through the body
For the pain was excruciating
And the scarlet spread,slowly
The monster continued to batter
Until the flower withered away
