Lost Love

                By:Huda Rizwan

Silence took over her mind and chains gripped her heart. Cur­tains of love left her eyes and her hands tied them­selves up. Her body that once danced to the melodies off hap­pi­ness now stiff­ened and her hair that swayed with the breeze were tied up. The eyes that showed noth­ing but inno­cence and love, were now cold and life­less as if the warmth had been sucked out of them. Shad­ows formed under her eyes and her tears were locked up in a secret cham­ber. Pants and but­toned up, shirts replaced lit­tle white dress­es and the tiaras were thrown away.
