Tapestry


My life is a tapestry sewn with regret

Wrapping myself up sometimes

Tight

So tight, I can barely breathe

Sometimes I lay it out

Flat

With a needle, I pull up threads

Changing the patterns

Manipulating

Turning some inside out, upside down

Staining with the red in me

Naked

I lie with my tapestry

So clear, no illusions just fear

Folded

One layer upon layer

Until there’s no definition to my craft

Forgotten

Tucked away high in a box

Falling when the cold makes me ache

(10/14/98) Reheated Leftover
