Your blue heart quivers, taken by noxious fumes of divinity. A dying pulse rattles seeping veins, and cerulean beads drip down your face.
The needle falls from your broken fist.
‘It is enough,’ you gasp.
I watch as the embroidery pulls apart. The seams are failing – the barest of threads.
‘Perhaps,’ I say. The word is naked in the perspiring night.
Eyes glaze, and drops of blue tremble at your brow. Beneath your tongue shimmers a lustrous truth. But you will not voice it.
‘It is enough,’ you repeat.
The lie stands unchallenged.
Such agonizing ways you have met yourself.
