On a strange and deep evening
I saw a wounded bird
Snoozing
On the wallís rim
Its eyes bulging out
Tongue lolling
I had witnessed a similar scene
Earlier
I have a wretched memory
I donít recall much
Unless
A new scene is a reminder
Of an old one
Then I remember it as
A familiar scene
The condition of the bird
Brought the image of a girl
I attempted to sketch on paper
But bird flew off
The girl became naked

So very interesting Dear Aftab!!
This piece is highly visual... drawing the reader in... and your analogy of the bird to the girl is very clever!
Well done and Thank you for sharing!
With love,

It's funny how some birds and people appeals to some and not to others. Our inspirations come from many places. Good write.
