The Ball and Chain (Response)


You needed a friend
I was the enemy
You are the beauty
I AM THE BEAST

I am your ball and chain. The source of your pain.

My heart aches over what I did.
That's humorous....
What heart?

I am your ball and chain. The source of your pain.

The truth is, I loved you then as much as I love you now.
(why do we hurt the ones we love so dear?)
I wanted to be more than friends. Instead, I killed almost every chance I had.
"Fell" for a woman that intended to strip my soul bare.
To cut my hair.
As it was done to Samson by Delilah so fair.
To take my strength.

....You tried to help me.

I resisted.....

....Now, I give in

But I'll only hurt you.

I am the ball and chain. The source to your pain.
