Her friends told her that marriage added colors in their lives.
It sure did, for her too. They were in shades of red, blue and black.
The mind learnt to live with rations of love and affection along with a big serving of degradation, though the heart felt trapped.
It was like that animal in a cage that was loved but had lost its freedom and self esteem.
For how long could she look the other way? Tolerance always has limits.
She decided to just walk off and kept on walking. It was her most powerful yet graceful walk ever!

Both come at a cost. Being trapped and walking free.

Ah, love your take on the word prompt Shilpa! 🙂 Especially the ‘colours of marriage” being red, blue, and black: so vivid an image that you paint with words. <3

Those colors should never be apart of a marriage! I am glad she had the guts to leave and get out of a bad situation. Lovely story…unfortunately true to life for way to many.

Wow powerful. You have captured her moment of realisation so well, it can happen anytime anywhere. The most important thing is to not ignore the feeling.
