In Knots

In Knots

Trying to untie
the macramé
of my thoughts
Knotted every 
which way
 
Tightly bound
and resistant
to my attempts
All I can do is hope
for a fray
 
The more
I struggle
the more it stings
Words no longer
coherent
 
A jumbled mind
looking for release
from this
cloud covering
obscurant

    Loved this Christine especially the fray analogy. I’m doing a unit at uni Creative Writing: Structures and Forms and we covered a topic on poetry which was good to remind me why we need poetry in our lives.
