held together ornate lace
an indefinable weave, delicate stitches
interwoven we are
not the love of souls intertwined
flesh, blood and bone
in a twisted skein
a place lost in the artistry of
fabric, easily damaged
fragile, worn edges
that a seamstress alone

Thank you very much Jackie, yes I couldn’t think of another that would describe what I needed, thanks for reading and commenting.
yes, some things are so hard to mend. all we can do, is do the best we can, these things are very fragile.
That they are and you know where I am in this, hugs Beth xx
Life and emotion, love and hate are fragile and complicated. This is an awesome poem once again.
Thank you so very much Tess. How easy we can unravel, just one tiny thread will begin the process. x
One thread is what sometimes holds us all together. A perceptive take..
This is true 🙂 x

Thank you my friend
We do all have that point where our edges become so worn they start fraying and then there is no going back to a nice neat woven fabric. I loved your choice of lace for this piece, Jen.
Thank you Beck, yes coming apart at the seams can occur too easily these days. Hugs and thanks you. Xxx
Stunning Jenny =)
