Each pattern has a meaning
boasting of circumstances and colours
love, hate, rebellion, stuff in between
of facts and memories, that one wished
to hold onto, tight, tight from
under the skin, ligament
even marrow, if I may add.
Strange dilemmas, to share or not to
share, to expose or not, the heartaches
determined to guard then just
scream it all out, a proof in pain, the
ultimate creative expression, intended to
preserve the spirit, an extended companion
for life; I ‘ll add you in my list of the
strong and mad.
