Eternal Bondage – Day 4 #OctPoWriMo

Eternal Bondage

.

We are, One, though trapped:
One in gilded chains
One in shackles of rust
You and I are One:
bound we fear and fight
the hate of, love of either one.
Chains of silk, of blood, of genes,
of grey matter, infectious laughter–
sane insanity–and of history.
Bound till death, my most intimate,
most foul, most selfish
kin.

Do please share your thoughts  🙂

Many have assumed this to be about sexual bondage, or of familial relationships, when it’s actually my examination of being bound to bipolar disorder. Saying that, I don’t mind how it is interpreted.  🙂
