Ripped out love.
Not nearly enough
Threads hanging left,
To connect.
Too many tears wept.
To repair me now,
Yank the rest out;
No evidence allowed.
Pull the straggling ends,
Till I’m empty again.

For Paula's "Thread" contest

    I like how you did your entry, Susan. I always love analogy and you held it to the very end with the theme you created. I hope it scores. Luv, Andrea

    What a powerful write Susan! I love how you keep wanting the thread out that has been straggling, that could be of evidence! I also love how you want to leave yourself empty again, to being anew, to start over! Like I said, very powerful poem! I really enjoyed reading it this fine afternoon! Great Work!!

    Its interesting that alot of these "thread" poems are sad and full of angst. That said..I enjoyed the read..well done. BG
