I am a single strand

forgotten and unloved

I became we

as we kissed eternally

We offered our protection

and sworn to always choose love,

but you stepped right between us

Ripped our fibers

extracted our strength

Severing our bond

With your festering blade

Yet I remain a single strand

Forgotten and unloved

But in love with my own warmth

All I carry now

Is but the memory of what once was

Floating on this cloud

That is how I carry forth

  1. It’s crazy that in 17 lines you can tell a story that sounds like it could take place over months or even years and it is filled with so much emotion
