Knots

Free verse

Source

Our love is filled with knots
all the places where it used to be pure
unblemished,
all the places where it broke,
and we tried to get it back
to the way it used to be
not realizing
it will never be whole again.

Let these knots be proof 
that we didn’t give up so easy;
let it be said that we tried,
that we fought,
even when all odds 
were stacked against us.

Let it be said, 
that yes, we did love,
but this time, the fault wasn’t ours
that a string can only be retied 
so many times
till one day it gives way,
breaks on its own
under the weight
of all the knots 
it was never meant to carry.

It broke,
but let it be said,
that yes, we did love.
