Poem: No Chains

Amazing connection

Of mutual respect and love

Love without chains

Who needs chains?

Or labels?

I don’t want a child

To raise

I don’t want a boyfriend or a husband

I want a lover I don’t have to love

Like Bright Eyes

Every song a new memory of him

No arguments

No yelling

We stay in peace

Amidst the storm

Each one facing a stream of high waves

Different goals, different approaches

But some goals in common

Similar passions

In another time

We could’ve been something

But not now

I’ve said this before

Love has disappointed me

People disappoint me

I need time to be alone

I need my own space

I don’t want to be dependent on someone

I want to be me

And I need to be free

Something in me

Wants this

This whole situation

Is suitable for me

Writing as much as I can is my goal. Writing soothes the soul and quiets the mind. There's not much to say about me, my words talk louder than any description that I can make.
