Chains of Love {Gargleblaster}


There was never any doubt,

from the moment your eyes caught mine

with your voice lilting me to your side,

that I would sit (obediently) in the sanctuary of your love.


You never need to ask,

My song is forever your name.

  3. Kir, your language is always so poetic. I love the lines “your voice lilting me to your side” and “in the sanctuary of your love.” Very nice. Karen

  9. The obedient thing has me wondering if there’s something else going on behind what looks like a beautiful love story.

  14. The parenthetical ‘obedient’ and the title of this piece combine together to hint at a multi-faceted back-story to this. Great word choices!
