Shouldn’t be you.

You are a killer

You denture my skin

You break my bones

You gash blood out of my body

My dignity means nothing to you

When I complain

You say don’t give me that tone of voice

The pain has become a routine

I cannot do anything because you feed me

There is no peace amidst this chaos

Shouldn’t be you,dad.


This goes to all the victims of family rape. It’s bad that people get raped and it’s worse when it is coming from a member of one’s family. Nothing last forever. The pain too. Oh! It’s fiction.
