It grips you tight

Wraps around you

Like a vice

Twisting and fighting

to break the hold

You struggle against

the chains

But the drag you down

Your will is broken

and your beaten down

Resolve weakens as

the chains tighten

So tight that you can’t


Fighting against the feeling is


It’s buried within

Melancholic chains

never far

Never gone

They loosen for awhile

but never go away
