the ball and chain

And there were choices to make.

There was the blissful carefreeness of it all,
the weight of no world but my own,
burdened by no day-to-day pattern,
bound to no wretched routine.

But it was empty.
And the emptiness had to be filled.

And so I chose this shackled path.
Better bound,
than alone.


  1. Nice metaphor for marriage, I'd say! ;p

  2. It's so fascinating how you all immediately thought marriage... but it's light-years away from what I was actually thinking about!
