The patchwork of my heart

It beats only because it’s hanging on

by thread.

Pulling it gently, to piece back together

resurrecting the parts that were dead.


Dripping, congruent to squeezing a tangerine,

pouring out the very last drop.

But not wasted because he salvaged the

pulp of my throb;


Of my pain, and every inch of grain.

The potency, of my heart.

Weaving the needle in and out,

removing the dart.


It soreness stitched back together,

just a light crack in the center.


Stood in the palm of the Weavers hand,

was all of my hurt;

the pitter-patter of my pulse,

was the muse to his patchwork.

    Those opening lines were astounding and the rest equally great. "the pitter-patter of my pulse, was the muse to his patchwork" The ending was also magical. Well done

    Dang, girl. This was vivid and sexy and sad and scary. All in so few words. Loved this!

  • Whoaaaa, this blew my mind! It was sooooo deep and your imageries were so vivid! I'm sooo freaking in love with your poem!

  • More than just an entry to Poppy's prompt, I sense in this how much that time with your ex meant to you while it lasted (& how painful it must have been to have those stiches ripped out), but even more the ongoing ministrations of your faith & the work Christ is doing in you, not merely for a season but forever.

    I love how a patchwork can go in so many different ways. yours is so interesting, weaving real life. The tangerine patchwork is smartly done.

    I don’t know if this a nightmare or a bad episode of life you weave here ?
