Poetry: “Shackles”

Something a little darker and moodier.

***~***~***~***

Shackles

My feet are tied
My hands are too
A chain has me locked tight
In this my place

There is no escape
As much as I try
The shackles they bind me
Bind me so hard

Restless and pacing
Feeling that weight
Trying to gaze off
To pleasanter skies

Much like a fox
Who’s caught in a trap
I gnaw now and and then
To try and escape
