Un-Tangle

It is not for us
To untangle
The twists of sadness.

Its binding threads —
Each discrete strand, memory
Of loss, of melancholy,

Spliced, one by one
With fibers of soul,
Until becomes the knotted heart.

To separate them then
Would take the
Center from itself,

Alienate
That which is
Unalienable:

Worry from care,
Grief from love,
Heart from break.

 

 

Opening effort for Tantalizing Tuesday‘s first Three Word Challenge, hopefully picking up from where Three Word Wednesday left off after shutting down.
