Silhouetted shadows
weave a story
within four walls.

Stringed jasmines, roses
lay crushed upon
yards of luscious silk.

Clinking bangles
shatter unheard 
amidst the savage slurs.

Wafting fragrance
from the burning incense
shrouds the reeking breath.

Blotched marks in purple, blue
ooze with blood beneath 
precious diamonds, pearls.

Embroidered dreams 
fade with silent tears
for a fractured soul.
