Henna-ed hands..

Posted on: January 19, 2009

Henna-ed hands
Red and yellow bangles
and a vermillioned forehead

Marks of love
or womanhood

Yet they are taboos to me
my tears wash away
the wet henna
from my hands
the hands of
a bride never to be.

I feel speechless after reading the ending lines =|

How do you write these lines!…full of human feelings.
