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And living her life—a withdrawn glance.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.
