"Well...actually that's how I met Bob" Frank Iero

Chains once as strong as steel
Are now as brittle as weakened bone
Threats that were once terrifying
Are now empty words
With my new found strength I rent these shackles
Wrists and ankles rubbed raw dribble sludge like blood of frustration
I know one day the blood will dribble as fluid as water
And when it does I will bind my wounds
With the shackles you forced me into for eight years
But this time it will be of my choice
And when I no longer wish to be bound
I will cast off my bindings

I was listening to The Sacrament by HIM on repeat and was also listening to The Used's Artwork album
