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
Brushes by
And carelessly catching
They keep walking away
Forcing you
Into the world
