My Chains

My Chains

A Poem by Chelsea
"

A link for every wrong commited, a never ending chain.

My Chains

Every bad,

A new link added to my chain

They stalk my every step

Clinking and banging behind me,

My ankles covered in blood and scarred,

Along with my broken heart; my heart unable to love; just to hurt

The chains, take their toll

I feel as if I can’t push on any longer

They shout “Look at me” to all,

All are able to see the crumby person I really am

My fellow fallen,

See me, still treading above water; while they’re drowning

They grab hold of my chains, pulling me further

In the dark path I’ve traveled on

I often wish my chains would shatter

They stay firmly planted; constant reminder of my wrongs

Love sweeps me; a new beginning

I find the one for me and he finds the one for him

Uplifting my shadowed soul

I live once again; I love once again

Without chains.

Those chains that bind. Slowly removing from your heart will set you free. Very moving write!

Love can bring us from a self made hell. I could feel the pain and misery in your words. A strong story. I like the ending. Sometime very hard to open closed and locked doors. Life is long and we need to find something to make us feel content. A outstanding poem. You made me think.

Chelsea - very, very well constructed poem!

But I worry - seems like your waiting for someone to magically lift you out of the dark place. It doesn't work like that, 99/100's of the time. You must be your own Knight in Shining Armour - it's too much pressure to put on another person.

you have a very signature style... I liked the theme even though it is often used... you made it your own, well done!

Good Job.
