I watched you unravel,

thread by thread.

Helpless,

I despaired.

Needle in hand,

unskilled.

My love for you dwindled,

I could not sew you.

As you faded,

my hopes did too.

Comforting yet flawed,

utterly disastrous.

You were my sweater.

Stitch by stitch,

thread by thread.

You left my skin.
