Poem by: Ben Dunk. December 12th. 1967

 

CHAINED PRISONER

 

I am chained

I am a prisoner

How can I escape from your clutches

Your love was dishonour

If you remained

I could be freed by the touches

Of your love

 

You have found

Another face to love

And so these bands of steel embrace

My heart all tight around

Heaven above

Grant me strength to remove the trace

Of your love

 

Gone for ever

Mutual felt feelings

Of loving supreme on this planet

I shall endeavour

In my doings

To subdue all the loss and regret

Of your love

 

But you’re there

Awaking or dreaming

Your memory lingers and chills me

I am a prisoner

In these chains I shall never be free

Of your love
