Unchained

Long ago I gave my heart to a man
Once upon a time

Little did I know that my best interests
Were not what he had in mind

He bound my heart in ways unforseen
Encircled with a chain

Disguised it came presented as a gift
For his memory to remain

In time it revealed the truth it held
my heart it had enslaved

But I held him dear and loved him so
His presence I so craved.

Years had passed and time went on
The memories they faded

My heart still bound by the chain
My perception fogged and jaded

Until the day it finally happened
I heard from him no more

My heart had been released of his grip
and was free upon the shore

His grip was loosened the chain slipped off
The burden had been eased

My mind slipped back to happier times
My heart was quite relieved

It came off with a fling almost unnoticed
It sailed off unseen

To land somewhere upon the earth
Amid the grasses green

I've no desire to find the chain
nor the man who gave it

I enjoy the peace I have found
at that I choose to leave it.
