The Chains That Binds

Updated on May 16, 2017

On the Day we wed, as one we became

We were in love and nothing could

Change that

We loved, we laughed

And danced to songs as old as time


We frolicked in Lifes green pastures

And Nothing could change what we felt

The World to us was new, young

And exciting


Nothing could change us, we pledged

Our love to each other our breath mingled

With soft Words spoken

and unspoken

Love burned deep within

Nothing could change us


We saw the tides change

from salient hues of blue to cold stark lifeless gray

And pledged that nothing

Would change us


Years went by and the dance became awkward

And my limbs no longer moved with the grace of Youth

Our lips no longer touched in anticipation

Your eyes which once bespoke those words of love

Forever silent

Choked within the ties that bind


Choked in this instance means as in old English to stop or to pause; to cause to end. Not as it relates to physical choking.
