Threads

These threads pull together
These threads weave together your existence
Your dependence
And as we look to the sky
We live
And as we hide
Cut the rope that he’s tied

I’m bound by the tension that we’ve placed between us
This silence is simple
We look at our hands
Weather by scorn
And bruised by demand
As we lift these heavy expectations

We breathe for the threads that hold us together
We breathe for the stitches that hold us in place

These threads pull together
These threads weave together
And once we’ve forgotten
These threads will unravel…
