Can you sew

this tear
that was left

in my heart.

this rent that is

too costly for

me to pay

Will your deft

gentle hands
stitch up this

fleshy container
that longs for

new love.

Use your


to bind me,

and you

as one,

as I suture

my lips to yours,
meshing as one,
velcroed to your

passionate embrace.

Others have

hemmed and hawed,

or simply needled me
but your eyes have

threaded the emptiness
that drove me

from love's grasp,
you alone can

turn repair
into a perfect pair,

you and me,

it's as thimble as that.
