A Single Red Thread

Single red thread

A flickering orange flame fluttering at the sound of your breath

I hold mine in, not wanting to make it dance any further, it’s already too close

Any moment now, the two will unite

And burn the only thing holding us together

And the connection will be lost forever

  1. Love can be terribly fragile and fleeting – this poem seems to be saying. On the other hand, I also see the red threads as wicks for dynamites…the love is doomed, yes, yet instead of flickering into dying flames, an explosion tears the love apart.

    Beautiful and dangerous.
