ONLY IN LOVE
By Neel Anil Panicker
She felt his tsunami-like stare on her ripe as a summer mango body.
She felt the slash of cold iron nails as leathery belt lashed at her skin, tearing asunder delicate skin, blood squirting out like showers springing out of a sparkler gone crazy.
She felt his words, cruel and harsh, a hammer striking into her soul as her body flung into air, kicked with a maddening rage that spelt brutality with a capital B.
Only in love would she allow anyone to do that to her.
Only when in love would she willingly turn herself into a puppet.
