Chains

Rukhsana shah 1951 (Pakistan)



Cooey, Corey
What do you say
The singing bird
Sad and gloomy in my home
I swashed my images
Estirpated the feelings
Giving myself the ghastly looks
Never in my life was I
So feeble and feral
Isn't it queer
With his magic wand
He snached my freedom
And left my heart confined
Only with his thoughts
Are you cruel too
Like him Corey Corey
What do you say ?
Are you free ?
