Screams of Sonagachi

  While crossing the red light area
I saw its red roses on either side
Fluttering to display their beauty
Fleeting fragrance of perfumes
Bleeding out of tempting smiles.

They lined up against the railings
For the customers of midnights -
Sex-hungry beasts of dark streets
Who would devour them tonight
Only to let them breathe morrow.
By gratifying long lust of today's.

My heart heard their prey-woos
Through my sense and sensibility
My eyes witnessed growing woes
Tattooed in red tears since long 
On their naked arms, thick thighs
Long lacerated ignominious scars 
On their cigarette-burnt bodies
The necks, cheeks with lust bites
Used and reused as sex objects
In their flashy and fleshy dresses
Tear-smeared under the makeup.

Even eyeliners and mascara failed
To stream their life in mainstream.
Their powdered cheeks do shriek
To have a healing touch by society
To get rid of their pathetic, sad plights
In the dark dungeon of Sonagachi
Flooded with their pains, eyeful rains.
