Its so nice to be free of binding love.
To be unwounded and unbound.
To ride the skies of freedom,
and to hear the echoing sounds,
And to untie the knots that she tied,
Thus to drop the ropes aside.

Her attempts to hold me in her clasp.
Failed to bind me or keep me trapped.
Her "rules", her "restrictions",
were convulsing constrictions.
Now their just limp twine,
no longer mine.

I'm glad I never told her the truth.
She was more interested in my money,
Which I have more then youth.
Looking for someone to "support" her,
Someone she could order around.

She guessed wrong.

    Some relationships are like this, and it is good that you found this out before taking the plunge and getting hitched or allowing someone to take control. Sentiments well expressed in this poem.

    I like it! Controling relationships are the worst. I've had a few and so have (some still having) my friends. Glad you got out. Some ppl aren't that strong.
