Daily Prompt – Grimace

The chains that bind us to our dark embrace

Are the chains that make me stop and grimace

Is there even a ghost of a chance at second glance

Bringing all of this back into some balance?

Tell me now, is it so, that you are so totally lost

That you don’t see the exacting of your cost

Falls more on two little girls still so innocent

And for whom we should both seek to protect

You push and pull them in your one sided tug of war

When perhaps you should love them more

Maybe it’s true that I deserve nothing but wrath from you

And that’s okay about me, go ahead doing what you do

At least when it comes to me, but, as to them, please let them be

That is, after all,  to love and protect them is our first duty
