Chains of Love

As the chains of love grow heavy,

I begin to realize they are pulled down by your disappointments and exhastion at my inability to be what you expect. 

To be what you need.

And as I try to stay standing. 

To do what you ask of me.

I feel myself shrinking, weakening.

With only the hope to make you smile,

To make you proud,

keeping me from collapsing under the ever growing weight of these chains.
