E-1 The Prisoner Of War - Poem by samyak jain

for once
i am defeated,
in a war
that you never fought,
Princess Charming
me as your
Prisoner of War.
put me
in your
four-chambered gaol.
i will lie sequstered
may be in the darkest dungeon,
but secure
in the knowledge
i am close by you.
feed me nothing
but with
your loving glances,
i can survive
not one, two
seven lives
with the
if need be,
let no wind
blow there
the fragrance of your
silky bodice
will enchant me to life
till time's end.

cribbed, cabined, confined
a life it will be
that life will be beautiful, .
you will be close by me.
in such prison
i will roam free,
my beloved by my side,
my food will be her glances,
my breath will be her breaths,
my life will be
her charity.
