A string binding, loosened by contraction
The tether temperamental ice,
Commitment prone extremities line a rhythmic pulse.
There still is life yet.

Corroded iron closing its demise,
Trap your tools still, rendering useless.
Binding still, through weak link
There still is life yet.

Rasping designation mutates from once sweet nothings.
Cursing an awaiting lug
The ether grasps the hateful artillery, weighing nothing.
Death on contact
How can there still be life yet?

I was inspired by the how marriage has changed over the past few decades and how children have been brought up has too.
