Suppressed Soul

written by: Rukhsana Ahmed


Not a blink, not a tear
Neither a smile nor a cheer
To be seen

Not a word, nor a sound
No joy, no cry,
To be heard

The eyes stare
The lips are tight
Just a blank look
Gazing into the air

No voice, no emotion
of thoughts and dreams,
A lonely heart
A quiet spirit
Moves within the black garb

Covered the body maybe
Yet the eyes are revealing
Like a silent voice screaming
The desire to unveil
The yearning to free
The suppressed soul covered in black.

I am from the Maldives, and have a passion for poetry of all genre. When I have free time from my day job, I give a go at poetry writing as a hobby. Gender equality and women's rights are issues close to my heart and I try to contribute to these matters in different ways. While an amateur at poetry writing I try to reflect these issues that are important for me in my poetry writing.
