She led me
To believe Her heart Had changed. 💔 Was the truth that Her heart Had been chained? ⛓ Like water Did she choose The path Of least resistance? 💧 Could the Free spirit I knew Have been led away Tied like a balloon? 🎈

Read the stars in my eyes Hand me the key And I’ll chain my own wrists Slipping in and out Of our own lives Like shadows. I can’t breathe underwater. In the darkness I reflect the sky In the midst of this war I’m sacrificial It’s written on my face And the palms of my hands My fortune The belief I will save you My eyes are tired But you can see me Dreaming your dreams, Drifting in the undertow. Everything has changed. I’ll drown under these grey skies A kiss of life Under the weight of the world
What is loved,
now is cumbersome to engage. Some sort of lethargy resists my path. Reaching a state of catharsis is draining now. Not emotionally but physically. Stuck in this house, with no way out. Quarantined from a virus. But I’ve come down with one that leaches my creativity. Writing this poem is hard. It feels plastic. Even though I’m writing clear what’s so elastic. It stretches around me so true, But when I speak it, it lies and makes me blue. I need freedom to return to my soul. And an inoculate to cleanse it of this toll. These two ailments leave me, Chained and restrained.
Shackled, and chained.
Yet, I’ve never felt so free. You’ve awakened this primal instinct in me. Burned, and bruised. Tormented, and used. I'm yours to abuse. I kneel, At your feet, Waiting for command. Waiting for the slightest gesture granted from your hand. I look down. My hands in lap. l am at your will, Waiting for your finger’s snap. With hair pulled back-- Gathered in your hands. And cheeks warm-- Caressed by your voice. Lips are wet-- Touched by yours. Cleaning, and cooking. Almost every day. Folding, and preparing. Doing whatever you say. I'm yours; I'm branded with your name. I'm bonded to you, No matter what, And I stand unashamed.
Why do I even stay
When all you bring is pain may be because you don't cast me away but love me even when it's inhumane You always keep my feelings at bay it's something I can never explain you never let me stray even when you're a demon I try to contain
make your grave
the lap on my thighs... your open casket coffin calls for the nip of your soft rotting flesh on its skin if i have to hold you while fleeting, decaying losing yourself alive... i'd rather be mother death forever still watching over you.

i need much edge. thanks i guess.
Chained and shackled to the bottle
Disorderly conduct, a DUI, domestic violence report. My guilt is shown in I front of the court. Wanting to stop Dreams are a flop. Behind lock and key. My new baby sister, I’m unable to see.
I’ve strained from my path
A long time ago, If only I could break free From this filthy world. My soul is searching For a glimpse of light, In this dark night If only stars would shine bright. I wish to sail far away To a peaceful place, Where my mind won’t rage, I’m sick of being in this cage. I’m tired of plastered smiles, And white lies, I’m tired of fake love, And dark skies. Of expectations, And regrets, Of weeping, And sweats. I just want to fly free, With no worries, Finally leaving behind, All of my furies.
If you love something
You should set it free Not keep it chained Where it doesn't want to be Because if that love is true And meant to be It will return to you Eventually
I have to say this is one of my favorites. I am quite proud!
