The moment sleep comes; I get up perspiring profusely, her cry for help ringing in my ears.
Whatever may be one’s karma, no one deserves this gruesome end.
I showed cowardice and am doomed for whole life.
I was just passing by when I witnessed the most heinous crime.
They were four men, behaving worst than an animal.
I was intimidated by their number.
I thought they will kill me if they see me, so I can’t help her anyway.
I can find excuses to console me. But the fact remains.
I could have done something to help her.
