Heartstrings Tend to Know

Untangle the knots that hold your breath
Trapped tightly against your chest

Smooth out the line, too thin to be weighted,
Efforts to sever caught by its artful strength

Cast out the string, baited with care,
And wait with heightened senses

And once you feel the tug,
No matter how slight,

 Follow.

  2. Such a sweet poem; On the second read-through I saw how its form also matches the image above it. Excellent composition of both parts.

    This piece makes me feel like my heart is fishing with spider silk.
