We lie still

a poem by Priyanka Sharma

Created with wishes
it was a palace full of hope
unguarded but safe
in its ostentity
there were pillars
of gold in its parody
they are sailing
in gifts of so called love
but we are mocked
they say-
we lie still.

We lie still
because we cannot move.
They mock us
but we cannot move
they laugh
but our muscles
remain stationery.
