In your silence I begin to unravel


In your absence I build stories from charred matchsticks


And applaud myself for guarding my heart the increment that I did


And berate myself for not concealing it altogether


Then laugh at my silly self when time reveals nothing actually changed


Save the fabric of my imagination

    A 100th hub should be some kind of marker. I've stalled for days knowing it needs to be randy in topic and more that just another one of my poems. So I've decided to cheat. Hubpages unpublished one of my best grossing...

Ah.. the imagination left to its own devices is apt to go wild! I adore your writing, long or short!

Love it! There's a certain melancholy in this. The "fabric" of your imagination is always strong.

Hi Candie! I figured if I could say it in 6 lines the 7th would just feel inadequate.

We are so often tied to the one we love, bound by commitment, that there are sure to be unravelings at times.

Loose strings of thought that wander, growing knitted brows, and knotted stomachs. But we all have a bit of insecurity, no matter how much we are loved. it is that vulnearbility that adds to our charms.lol~~MFB III

If vulnerability adds to our charm, then I am quite charming. Thanks for the comment MFB.

The nervousness of love and the conscious thought of it--as if this poem were saying 'am I losing my mind by loving this person?' Well done Randy. I wish I had this problem to 'unravel' about -sigh-

Oh AIDY, are you looking for love? Try writing a slew of poetry about men and see if one doesn't manifest for you. Well, it worked for me?


Am I dead, yet? 6 years ago

=o my--now that would complicate things for me greatly. That is one less problem I need at the moment...woah, I get chills at just the thought of it =D

I know you aren't really unraveling

He will give you a stitch in time,

but you'll probably want nine,

Greedy love

The truth of the matter is that there cannot be love without the unravelling of layers of ourselves, to bare all, and to be ourselves naked before the other.

Nicely put together.... poetesse and poem I am sure are alike.

That is probably a healthier type of unraveling, more of a revealing, of which you are speaking. And that is one of the joys of a new love.

Yes, I'm in them all.
