Coming undone

this very night 
unfolds the darkness
as the stitches of memory
unravel with time 

I see you 
in the loop
of mind 
on the threads
of thoughts
trying to poke holes
in my existence

I feel you
ripping me apart
at the seams 

my torn heart 
and tattered soul
struggle to mend themselves 
whole again 

spools of life
dangle before me
yet these eyes can't see
past memories
any more than these hands
can tie the knot
to close the gap
nor stop the frays
of darkness 
that unravel me
