International women’s Day

“Fragmented Shadow”

This is a war

Between the black blood of my pen

And the suspicious whiteness of this paper

This is a war

Through My Red Tears

Which erupts

from the wounded walls

Through My Lipstick

Which is rolled

in the soil

And the silent voice of a woman

In red lipstick

This is a war

Through a woman’s split skin

Who rises helpless.

She Leaves on the ground her slapped face ,

And a fragmented shadow goes away
