DUTY AND LOVE

king


A King above; mean beasts below,
Trapped in between am I- 
A life painted with shades of valour and love, 
Torn between duty and desire. 

Lying in a pit where 
Sorrows pelt down on a stoic face, 
Bloody foam of weary wars 
Come whizzing through the air. 

Remembering a face, with smiling lips, 
Bright trembling eyes filled with faith. 
Departest I, with thy grief on my cheek, 
Heart wilting with fear of the fate I seek. 

Sadistic me, dauntless in war- 
I'm no cavalier worth you at all. 
With plume of charge of the state, 
I am just a protector with no lover's fate. 

O Princess dear, waste no bead of tear 
For an animal of war, provider of Death. 
Set your heart on a worthy soul; 
For our love lies in a forbidden zone. 

Remember O Love, 
For I'm forced by luck 
To dance on a double edged sword 
Of Duty - so cold. 

-VAISAKHI MISHRA
