[NaPoWriMo Poetry- 13] “Touch me not”


When she was young,

she would pause her walk

to relish the clumps of Mimosa.

The leaves bashfully shrinking to her touch.

Never stopped till she closed down

every single one of its delicate shy leaves.

Never pondered what it must have felt.

But today, she feels like a Mimosa herself,

touched, harassed, violated.

He a self-proclaimed ‘superior’,

will not stop till he closed down

every single one of her delicate emotions.

She a fragile mimosa

Touch me not, she said.
