Poetry 2017 Longlist, Surbhi Grover

The Scars of Beauty

Surbhi Grover

Unmarried and eager
Waiting for her prince
On a white horse.
He did come
But on a bike
With acid in his hands.
Marring her face
He left her wishing
She were less pretty.
For had she been that,
He wouldn’t have had
The need
To conquer.
