Harlequin Quill | Arushi Singh

As I sat on my desk,

the most lethal weapon in my hand.

The world was afraid of what it would spill,

laden in blues, the plight of womanhood,

dirty black strokes of those, on the dais, stood,

crimson red, their death sentence,

just white, blank, good riddance,

the colours of my quill.
