Today's OneWord: Imprisoned

How long has the queen been imprisoned? Seven years? Seventeen? Is there gray in her hair and wrinkles beneath her eyes, or is she still young and spry in a darkened cell? Has she been muted, or does she still sing? Her melodies and anthems are missed throughout the land. The king's been dead for too long now - how much longer until we get our true ruler back? I've stopped counting the days; I simply press my body up against the window nearest to the tower, hoping to hear a crescendo of music.
