The Golden Thread: A Valentine’s Day Poem

 

Love,
The golden thread that binds our hearts together
or is it a thread just waiting to
Snap?

 

Called a heart-warming feeling,
But is it really just anger boiling up inside?

 

And when it bubbles over and leaves you wounded,
With a gaping
hole
unable to be refilled.
Until another person comes along and the thread re-ties itself,

 

And so when the church bells fail to ring,
You remember: The Golden Thread is such a fickle thing.
