She Did what She Can

Sajad Wani 1981 (Srinagar)

You left her like she was a nothing
used, abused, loved and hated
she was torn in a million ways
thrashed, thudded and murdered

She was alone in the dark cold nights
lingering on thine muscular scents
left for dead by the passing hunters
her sighs were colder and cold

Now you blame her she is a cheater
as she cling to another man
listen Davis lets be sincers
she did what she can
