the old ball-and

the old ball-and-
chain is often made
with a texture meant
to be pulled
smoothly along
the troubled passages
of the heart
. you
hardly even notice
it, but these are
battles that take
only the most
willing of prisoners

    It was a nice foray into the mysteries of the heart here.
    We all hope that we will find a partner, a mate, a
    companion in this world, but when that is still a
    work in progress, every day is punctuated with
    vibrant colors of emotion and hormone displacement.
    Yes, you embrace the truth with /these are/battles that
    take/only the most/willing of prisoners/. So jump on
    in, the water’s fine.
