Short poem describing heavy news I have recently received that I can’t tell anyone about
Chains
I drag around every day
Weighing me down
Hindering me
From seeing the joys of life
Iron
Massive, black iron weights
I pull them wherever I go
I have to cope with them
But no one can know
Shackles
Keep me from laughter
Keep me from joy
Keep me from singing
And everyone assumes
I am just sullen, morose
Cuffs
Can’t tell anyone
Not my closest friend
That the reason I am crying
Is because of something
Deep
Dark
Buried within my heart
Pounding
Begging to come out
But
I
Cannot
Tell
Anyone.
Chains
