Encumbrance

Encumbrance
By Michael McManus

Beneath the relationship’s weight he falters and strains,
Assuming a miserable burden, laden in a constant Gregorian chant.
Looming large, his presence, for her, a heavy hindrance,
An added load to her daily trials, and his.

Amid this suffocating hold he craves their liberation,
To discover a route where freedom's light flickers,
To demonstrate beyond this oppressive form's span
There resides a spirit sturdy, resilient, sovereign.

Portrait of the heavily hindered. Soft pastel.
