Personal Ball and Chain

Personal Ball and Chain

A Poem by Matt M.

So what do you know about love?
The feelings of longing,
The feelings of betrayal,
Free me from this ball and chain
and whisk me away,
Free me from this ball and chain,

What do you know about depression?
Bottled up feelings of regression,
I drown my sorrows
with empty bottles,
hoping of better tomorrows,
Free me from this ball and chain
and whisk me away,
Free me from this ball and chain,

Now tell me about happiness,
Can you truly have it? 
Can you truly grasp it?
If so I wanna know,
Just point in the direction and off I'll go,
On a journey far away,
To someday be free from this ball and chain.
