Broken Chains - Poem by Amera Andersen
No footprint left upon my heart,
nor piercing arrow, nor cupid’s dart.
No lover claims my soul by theft,
upon my heart, no footprint left.
I live within myself alone
and only reap what I have sown.
I keep my feelings on the shelf,
alone I live within myself.
Within my castle tower safe,
a thickened skin that will not chafe.
Untarnished as a winsome flower,
safe within my castle tower.
Walls will rise and walls will fall,
I never wanted this at all.
My loveless life was a disguise,
Walls will fall and walls will rise.
