Nirbhaya, an unfortunate girl and a fateful night (Short Poem)

Spread the love
In the memory of many Nirbhayas…


It was a cold winter night

Which brought her a plight

While returning from her flight

It was all dark and there was no light…


Her hair was pulled

Her body was flayed

With all her body parts

Those hungry dogs had played…


She was thrown on the road

Crying in pain

Hundreds of people passed by

But all in vain…


She was left alone as it was her mistake

Realized now ‘his’ love was fake

With whom she dreamt of marriage vows

He turned out to be even worse than the foes…


Her pilot uniform was torn

A hatred was born

She wanted to die

Tell the world and not lie…


But all she could do was groan and cry

She withered away but still tried

She was broken and slayed

Her soul left her body, with a pain that he betrayed…

Goosebumps Vartika. Pain and sufferings are clearly reflected in your poem. I can’t even imagine what she must have gone through. not just physically but emotionally as well.

That’s very painful and hard hitting. The Nirbhaya incident scared all of us and the girl suffered till the end

This is heart-wrenching love. When the thought brings us so much pain, what NIRBHAYA would have gone through cannot even be fathomed.
