Bound together

by this chain,

trying to ignore

the increasing pain

of being dragged

side to side

you’re stuck to me,

dead or alive.

as the days flutter

and go by

i slowly loose the urge

of wanting to cry;

learning to be calm

while stuck next to you

isn’t the hardest thing

i’ve ever had to do.

We go together,

never apart

chained together,

by body, by heart,

even if

this here chain

fell off

of our bodies today,

side by side

we will still stand,

no longer chained together,

but still hand in hand.
