we dropped that moment
to hold our eyes still
frozen in thought
a fear that love would break so quickly
as this chain
and it would still be the fault
of my ignorance.
did it just disappear?
i went to kiss it
only to find air upon my chest
and tears soon to fall
in a show of trepidation and fear.
would i wake up to kiss
this stale dream away?
she still sits and holds my hand
we no longer fight over that chain
forgotten on my neck
but have looked deeper to the best chain
the one holding our hearts to place
side by side, in strongest steal,
and i can't fear it to break.
