Patchwork

My mind is made up of remnants.

Words that I’ve read, lines of poetry,

and so many things that have been said to me.

Some were uttered in love or friendship

but they have been so out-numbered by the hateful kind.

These are the things that stick and eat away;

like moths enclosed in a wardrobe space, hungry

and leaving behind a tatty patchwork.
