View Full Version : Patchwork

December 2nd, 2015, 02:07 PM
I recently met the very first person I ever spoke to on VT almost 6 years ago. We went through a lot together back then and now we see each other regularly now and are kinda a couple, but I wrote this shortly after the first time we met just over a month ago, so yeah, that's the context. Here's the poem.


Patchwork covers
To cover patchwork scars
They tried to tell us
That this wasn’t art
Candlelit vigil
To a life left behind
As I explore your scars
And you explore mine
So many years
We waited for this
Could almost believe
That it was all fixed
My fingertips follow
Each score and incision
A sharp intake of breath
A bleak admonition
That life is too short
We nearly weren’t here
But the candlelight flickers
And we have nothing to fear
