Thread

There are threads
To painful to pull
So you leave it alone 
To slowly unravel
But then that~waiting~
For the long undoing
Brings a chore
You hadn’t guessed at
So finally
You Flinch, BRACE, breathe 
Become ready to tug
When someone
Bumps
Brushes by
And carelessly catching
That—————one———————-loose——————————end
”Wait!”
They keep walking away
Forcing you
                          naked
Into the world
