A Chained Heart

A Chained Heart

By the bedside, near floral quilt,
Rests in chains, her reflection;
Tangling the rhythm of her dance
And living her lifeβ€”a withdrawn glance.
As she leans over, grasping the waiting steel,
All times of closure rear their sullen head,
To release all woe, dark horses empty:
That stole the origins of her love
To give below, to the harmful hand.
Her fate left too, knowing her lenient state:
Of pressing on when time did cue
To leave, and embrace a wild path,
Of ecstasy, breath and loneliness.
