5. Chapter Five

Author’s Note


I open a book

the leather binding

I dare to look

cracking, in use again

I found this tome

I sit on a bench

alone in a home

shade from a branch

And now I open

this book that’s magic

the words unspoken

to think this was in an attic

I turn the page

I see the writing

the paper yellow with age

introductions, the beginning

I see a note

to listen carefully

¨If you ever need to stay afloat

the answer is found easily

all you need is a friend¨

I look for more

too bad that’s the end

but instead of before

where I just sat and read

now I have something

to keep up in my head

I walk in the door, a bell ringing

I put the book down

on my desk

where I was going to drown

now I have a life vest.




Chained to the floor

memories weigh me down

I hear absolute silence

begin to drown


Tied to the wall

leather cuffs against my skin

I feel abandoned

a heart made of tin


tethered to the ceiling

I’m hanging all by myself

my loved ones disappear

one by one below


Bound to a pole

left outside, to rot and die

no one cares much

only enough for the knots to tie


Left in the desert

overboard in the ocean

a dust storm pulls over the horizon

a tsunami of all my fears


I fall under

the dust and wind filling my eyes

the water drowning my heart

My tears all wasted, I cannot cry


I see a shadow

what once was me

It shakes its head

and slowly leaves.




I wear this chain I forged in life

these locks molded through pain and strife

this chain I made link by link, yard by yard

now I am seperated, my life barred

I gartered it of my own free will,

of my own free will I wore it still

through rain and storms then drought and wind

the chains around me, they still wind.
