Severed Ties

Held together by the ties that bind, all the more important ‘cos we rigged the knots ourselves, 
Yesterday is lost and to tomorrow we are blind, so together we would face all that enraptures and repels,
And through the years it helped us put the worst behind, and enjoy the best, although it came in too brief spells,
But our tethers became weathered by the daily grind, and the frailest of all threads was all that held,
And to this thread we clung as we hoped to find, another rope to knot and save ourselves,
But the fierceness of the storms made this final thread unwind, and all hope of extra rope was soon expelled, 
But that was when we realised that by rope we weren’t defined, but rather by the warm strength of the hands we held.

Thanks Ghazala, I think that's perhaps the dilemma and turning point in most relationships, be it partner, family, friends, etc. When you realise that you stand side by side by choice rather than a sense of obligation or duty. Sometimes you need to cut people free to find out if they'll stay anyway, and sadly, sometimes you just need to cut them free altogether. So glad you liked it. ❤

Some times there's a challenge to make a choice between the ties to maintain and ties to severe. Although difficult but not impossible. We just need to understand that its better to break few ties to make permanently new beautiful relationships with someone you love. Its natural. Those who love and care for each other they hv an unbreakable eternal bond forever.💓
