Made in Heaven

Jingling gold bangles on both wrists. Handcuffs.
Vermillion on forehead. His stamp of control.
Mangalsutra around the neck. Asphyxiating noose.
Wedding band on fourth finger. Binding chain.
Red wedding veil on face. Seclusion from the world.

We all have our prisons. 

Everybody thought hers was “made in heaven.”
