Checkered Love

a poem by Raja Anjana Kothapalli

O’ Queen
Gracious and gallant
Essence of grandeur
An epitome of valour
Athena on earth

O’ Queen
Fortifying the King
Wielding raw power
The pride of the war
A force to reckon

O’ Queen
Bleeding for kingdom
Yet brandishing sword
Man of the field
Lady to the land

O’ Queen
A favour I beg
Your highness to grant
Remember this knight
Who bled for your life

O’ Queen, my Queen
The love of my life
An impossible dream
Never can be your king
Am your dying saviour
