asunder

bypbwgal©

my head is filled with metal bars
that hold me to this life I know
the chains of fear and locks of doubt
are captors I can't overthrow

my heart is bound by vows I made
with braided rope, its strands of love
fragile and worn the threads still hold
on earth below and heaven above

my soul it yearns to roam and soar
beyond the edge of all that's known
but it is anchored by a troth
I do cast in a weighted stone

behind eyes closed the dream is real
our passions live with heartfelt sighs
you come to me and fill me up
your ears swallow my silent cries

there is no wrong in darkest night
no bars or chains or silken rope
beyond the real we fly and dream
our yearning hearts beat strong with hope

I love him still yet I love you
the weighty cross each day I bear
my heart divided by two loves
we cannot be so I stay here

and breathe...

Fertile Subject

Well you found the Pobo, pretty good poem, wandering rhyme (a good thing )
evenly metered requires some discipline, although there is much to experience on poetry forms and un-forms. try some haiku andmore...

Beautifully captures the pain of loving >1

Your words ring true for those of us who risk the heart for the quickened pulse from the touch of another. Thank you for this.
