Free from the serfdom of “relationships”
But bound by the relationship between longing and loneliness within.
Free from the shackles of “commitment”
But bound by my commitment as a servant to non-commitment within.
If I’m not tied down by anybody,
Then why am I tied up in knots within?
Like a slave caught on the run,
Heartfelt thoughts of what once was us
Hang a noose around what once had mastered my soul.
