Silken

How delicate
these threads
that bind us –
frail filaments,
whispery darts
of affection –

How willfully
we ignore connection,
ignore ensuing pain…
individuality usurping
love’s needs –
a harsh lesson.

  1. Oh how “darts of affection” sets my mind spinning … darts are what shape clothing to “fit” a body and affection shapes behaviors to fit a relationship. But then the whispery aspect … dart becomes verb, becomes almost secretive zinging between partners … enough to make me sit up and look around!! Wonderful phrase.
