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

      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.

      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.

      I know you aren't really unraveling

      He will give you a stitch in time,

      but you'll probably want nine,

      Greedy love

      =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

      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?

      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-

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

      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

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

      :)

      Yes Dohn, I'm melancholy today.

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