Prologue:
Since the genre is fairy tale for adults, to me it is more of a sweet, lyrical and romantic tale. And I think poetry is the best way to express romance. Since childhood, Fantasies and Fairy tales have romanticised me extensively. Following my heart I have painted this romantic poetry, ‘Pearl Princess’.

Poem:

“Pearl Princess”

(1)
It’s your birthday! Wish to offer you the most coveted present – matchless in realm.
Ruminated, plunging into emotions, and found for you this garland of rhythm!

(2)
Some precious memories, and some enchanting stories,
Some deep-seated, hidden treasures secured in those glories.
Once upon a time, there was a fellow –
Simple, shy and young, had a heart like a child,
But he was like a river without a rein, in his dreams wild!
His princess, he thought, was a pearl unsurpassed, lived in the conch-shell land.
But alas! Even after his untold endeavors, he might not even hold her hand.
Fellow leashed his dreams, bridled the gamut of sentiments.
Looked away from the hopes of heart, and left for a new land.

(3)
The princess of conch-shell land was not a mere pearl,
She had a heart filled with desires, passions hidden, behind her eyelash curl.
She lived her days in agony, tears in her eyes,
Why her beloved deserted her, and shattered all ties?
Princess kept the flame of desires burning in her aching heart for long,
Eventually she gave up, her hopes washed away by her sobs, like an unheard song.

(4)
Era elapsed, fellow returned, realised his love for princess,
But she had left for a faraway land – dejected, heartbroken, waiting for days countless.
Her lover began to seek her like insane, knew no bounds,
Princess, anxious and desirous, reciprocated his love, passions spellbound.
Pearl princess gifted the love of her life, the precious conch-shell.
He kissed her and whispered, “I am only yours, my belle.”

(5)
It’s your birthday, desire to gift you this dream, my hidden treasure.
Now it’s yours, glorify it with your love, obsession and sheer pleasure.
