The Ties That Bind - Poem by Buddy Bee Anthony

As life goes on, time can surely sever
the ties that bind us in
sweet surrender.
Once I was
smitten by your
thrills

filling me through and through.
dangerous, and forbidden fruit
rendering a broken heart
Some hearts won't heal once they're broken
If it's any comfort to you
know the comfort in this:
I'll be there
when the ground underneath your feet has shifted.

If your rock-solid position is ever tested.
when embargo's are one day lifted
My love will appear with the bang of a gun
I'll put the cork in your bottle.
When it's all said and done
So down your periscope with your submarine
Your heavy
artillery
will not again blow my true heart to smithereens.
What could we do
with this heartache for two.
I once was hooked
like a junkie on juice.
Now, my eyes are wide open.
How was I such a fool
for sassy, sweet silly
all cuddly you.

    Ties that bind, the unwritten silent bond of heartache that will surely come to an end with a broken heart.
    An addiction that continues to pull your mind into it's circumference even in memories, taunting you in life. Thank you for sharing. RoseAnn

    The words by you were tied so tight like tied ropes that giving hope to tell a very strong emotion linked like a junction. Your penning touch has put the art rest on the paper, written to be read as a beautiful poetry masterpiece..like it (Report) Reply
