Ball and Chain.

I have been handcuffed to the hope that you will one day love me for so long that my newly freed wrist feels heavy.  Each indentation of the chain that was once there fills my heart with sorrow because my chain is no longer attached to you.  In fact, I didn’t even recognize it as a chain.  I recognized it as a beautiful bracelet that I was proud to wear.  How I loved that bracelet.  When I realized that you didn’t love me, I quickly understood that the jewelry I thought we were wearing were ornaments of crimes committed against us when we were young.  With each other, we were serving time.  Although the weight of our ball and chain grew too heavy, once upon a time, time served us.  Even if it was a lie, it was wonderful to hold the warmth of your skin on cold winter nights.  I have been handcuffed to the hope that you will one day love me for so long that my newly freed wrist feels heavy.  I hope that the universe hears the song of my heart.  It couldn’t have been you because if it were, we would still be we….Patrick
