The early winter sundown, bereft of apologies
Tricks the mind into nocturnal ponderings
My tangled sweater langueur, with warmth’s slow decline.
Has exposed a single stranded yarn, that now ensnares my mind.
Everything I know of, yes the many things I’ve seen
Have a rotten habit, of coming loose upon their seams.
And it’s then I caught a memory, from where I am unsure
Of the thread that hung between us, and how it never could endure.
Was it our calloused words? That came so naturally.
Or our roaring fire, where passion was our entirety?
Every conversation, carried bitter sentiments
I wanted to believe that was just our temperaments.
Was it the crashing and careening of our personal beliefs?
Was it moments of true honesty, that always seemed to brief…
I should have seen those cutting words, tearing through the weave
unraveling the chord that first brought you here to me.
There were times I thought to mend it, tie a knot to reconnect
Though it’s fibers fell through tired hands, eager to forget.
So as the world turned, the splayed strands did sever.
Who knows the length between us now, sometimes I hope forever.
The tattered, broken strands of yarn laying about my feet
From all the loves, and friendships past that point toward my grief
I have found solace in their existence, when tied fancifully as knots,
interlaced into a sweater, to keep me warm when I am lost.
