Constriction

Photo published for Niqab: Veiled under darkness - sister-hood magazine. A Fuuse production by Deeyah Khan.

Identity masked,

movement constricted,

a world framed

through a narrow slit

Blinkered,

denied the bigger picture

 

You may know

only the colour of my eyes

this is all I am permitted

No expression,

no words,

no body language

 

Reduced,

controlled by clothing

defined by garb

imprisoned
