Poem #43: “Ball and Chain”

I didn’t feel like doing any writing this week, so nothing to report on that end. Again. I’m a bit late posting this, since I was busy grading midterms. The first batch are done, but there will be more to do next week. So, don’t expect much progress (if any) on my writing.

Here’s the poem:

Ball and Chain

Stranded in a sea of sorrow
with no life raft or a buoy,
no lifejacket made of foam
to keep my body floating,
and there you are beside me
trying to drag me under,
like the ever-present weight
of a soul-absorbing anchor.
