The Golden Thread: A Valentine’s Day Poem


The golden thread that binds our hearts together
or is it a thread just waiting to


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
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.
