I throw my voice 
into the insecurities of this city’s
pale life.
Newspapers painted voices 
of victims in louder tone…
Women look from cages
Secrets of streets,
become news…

Let me escape from this gloomy city
to undress my soul.
Let me travel far,
beyond oceans,
I guess, new doors open.
I swear, I don't believe in weird thoughts.

Let me escape from this silence
to share our life 
Let me dive in words
which features women. 
What happens next?
Tattered memories
knit hearts together,
to explain writings... Women’s writings
to heal the woman in me.
