Tied

bent to my own will

i tighten the knot

of integrity,

chain the thoughts

of tragedy,

to the linked fence

as i reach for your hands.

i trust in the journey

and rush the bleating flock

through the gates of silence.

truth is the shield

that Love wields.

i will live the life

about which you write.

  1. This… all of this flows rhythmically and is completely in sync:

    “chain the thoughts

    of tragedy,

    to the linked fence

    as i reach for your hands.

    i trust in the journey

    and rush the bleating flock

    through the gates of silence.”

    Beautifully done.
