Love Imprison (Translation of Vimal Kumar's Poem)

Being a Goddess
You too are shackled in fetters

Never ever had I thought 
enchained body of an idol
within any manacle   

Devilish would
this thinking be
to seek freedom with love of thee
within the sorrowful flood  
is you
How may I hope
joy from you.

-Vimal Kumar's Hindi poem "प्रेम कैद" translated into English by Varsha Singh as "Love Imprison"
