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.
