Cuffs

Cuffs

A Chapter by Seamstress

You push and do it again

Think you’ll ever learn

You can’t push me away

I’ve finally got those cuffs in use

 

When we first met

There were cuffs upon your loops

I took those cuffs

They intrigued me so

 

I just watched

You flirted with many

I held the cuffs in my hands

Played with their key

 

You had another

I fell for one too

The cuffs went to my pocket

The keys in the other

 

We both loved someone

Yet I still watched from afar

My Peter Pan was your friend

Your Sinfullone was someone I knew

 

We both watched the other from afar

My hand still grazes the cuffs in my pocket

Hearts on fire for someone

You and I barely talked

 

She did you wrong but he still loved me

I talked you through and a friendship grew

Soon my heart was yours, and honest I was

Broke one man’s heart and slipped into yours

 

You push and do it again

Did you ever learn

You can’t push me away

I’ve finally got those cuffs in use

 

Our relationship grew and love abounded

Moments of grief and doubt made you push

Yet I wouldn’t let go, no matter what

No one understood my stubbornness

 

What you didn’t notice was the cuffs of yours

I slipped one side on you and the other on me.

I wanted to stay close as we know we should be

The key kept hidden even as you pushed

 

The harder you tried to push me away

The tighter my hand held to yours

Even as the cuff chafed the wrists

My love never let you go.

 

We married and I was in heaven

You gave me everything I ever wanted

Soon our wee ones began in our hearts

They grew within the stories we wrote

 

A family we created together

Da, and Ma, two sweet girls

Dreams of a boy to name for you

Held onto the cuffs between me and you

 

Nothing was perfect but it was better than many

Long distance made it tough but the love made it easy

Your support, your heart, your devotion

Amazed me still when I knew twas mine

 

As time passed quilt attacked you again

Moments when you didn’t want to hold me back

Even though you dreamed of me in your arms

You tried to push me away for my own good.

 

You push and do it again

You might be learning

You can’t push me away

I’ve finally got those cuffs in use

 

The days moved forward and closer we were

Those cuffs holding us together

No matter how you push me away

I’m sticking here for you

 

In October questions arise

The truth is teetering but my heart tis true

My mind may have questioned

But the cuffs remained locked by my choice.

 

It got better again

Then in May hell came again

I questioned again and the response wasn’t good

You were broken in a coma and I held on tight

 

You finally awoke with prayers and love

I pulled the cuff to me even as you pushed

Memories were slight and difficulties had

Our love didn’t change though as I held close

 

One day in June it all died I thought

Someone from your past entered our lives

Bringing pain and sorrow along with hate and revenge

The truth came out and our walls fell

 

As I died with the fallen lies the cuff wiggled on my wrist

The key in my pocket, never coming out, no matter what

My heart may have been aching but twas more that I was missing

Now the truth is out and our friendship stronger.

 

You push and do it again

Finally you’ve learned

You can’t push me away

I’ve finally got those cuffs in good  use.

OH GADS this is amazing!!! I truly think tis my favourite of all your poetry now. I love it so much. Not just because of the words, the feelings, and the fact that tis about you and I and all of our experiences together. But the rhythmic way of the verses, the symbolism and way it all flows so lovely ... a truly incredible write here, my dearest.
