Poetic Interlude #5

Embarrassment

I long to cast aside and break

The ponderous chains of silent desperation

That I – that we – have bound

So cruelly tight around me:

Twisted ropes that keep me grounded,

And lead me, helpless, to a safety that I never wanted;

Far away from the singing freedom

Of willful indifference

And the wild harmonics of an unfettered heart.
