the old ball-and
the old ball-and-
chain is often made
with a texture meant
to be pulled
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

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.
