ECSTASY TO AGONY

She looked askance,
Her grey eyes stealing a glance,
Strange surroundings, strange creatures,
Reflections image similar features,
Otherwise apart, I on my fours,
My language, howls from wild shores,
Where are you my kith and kin?
Feeling caged, not in my skin,
Rescued I am.....from freedom?
Feeling stifled under their thumb,
Tamed, transformed, a lady for the world to see,
Strangled and suffocated I will be,
Agony to ecstasy an irony,
In reality ecstasy to agony.

I see her as a woman raised by wolves, in the jungle. She is rescued by a forest officer, while on his vigil to deter poaching. I imagine, she was found cowering in a cave, wrapped in deer skin.
