The Unraveling.

The Unraveling

I’m wearing the thread bracelet that you gave to me

The one you tied so tightly around my slender wrist,

Making certain it would hold;

But I’ve noticed it slowly, ever slowly

Unraveling its silky blue fibers;

I try to tug them tight together, adding a knot or two,

Trying to savor the love you wrapped within these threads;

But every time I look away, they can’t help but come undone.

And I can’t help but come undone upon seeing them.
