The Love Chains

Updated on February 11, 2012

Kept in Bondage

I want to dedicate the inspiration of this poem to Princess Prisca


My bondage is the chains of your love

wrapped all over me

when I read the words you write

It's like falling into the sea


These chains are heavy

Deeper and deeper I go down

I claw and gasp for air

Please don't let me drown


Your love, it holds me

The chains won't let me go

I can't escape this love

You know this is so


When I touch the bottom

i feel your hold...

as it covers my heart

the waters are so cold


I can't escape the pain

Inside,...Oh woe is me

These locks on my heart

Only you hold the keys


Release me from this bondage

Take away this fear

I can't wait no longer

Love was never here

      Beautiful poem Michael. Very creative. I love the photos too. My favorite lines are

      "My bondage is the chains of your love

      wrapped all over me

      when I read the words you write

      It's like falling into the sea"

      Gorgeous!

      For me, this piece is all about the last stanza--

      Release me from this bondage

      Take away this fear

      I can't wait no longer

      Love was never here

      Beautiful work!

      Beautiful poem Mike! My heart has felt this way many times. Chained and drowning, falling deeper and deeper into a cold and menacing sea. and the one who holds the key just stands there and watches me go down...

      I forgot... Its on another site... sorry. I will try one here for you to see just how awful I am at it! giggle.

      Cleaner3 is a wonder

      Or is that a wander?

      The weather he never seems to be under

      Though his mind may be over yonder

      Finding words that he can plunder

      Low self-esteem he puts asunder!

      Sapphire, my lovely,see you can do it. let me give you a tip.

      write down your first line and then your second and then just refine the words as you go to the next line and so on. This is a good start. Now tell me your real feelings. LOL
