Words Shackle

 

Tired…I am 

words leave me not
at every turn they oppress me
seeking for my attention

Can I not be free for one day
loose to not be harassed
by the longing of words
they desire to share
long to snare

Visit me in the night hours
sleep deprave I rise
to their appointed call
Marry me they request
demand from me they
bequest

Tie me as a bow to their
inheritance
offer me no portion of
assistance
their insistence carries no
repentance

As a necklace around my neck they
hang
pierced around my ears they
dang
bright on my finger their shine
entwine
Fermenting my being as velvet
wine

Imprison me behind their bars of
letters
bankrupt me from living, I am their
debtor
Captured me they cease to
unleash
Who can carry their weight to
release

My eyes droop from their lasting
snare
My soul hungers to be free from their
lair
Wherever I run or roam they
follow
There is no escape, words are mine alone to
swallow
