It becomes something you can risk when you know you can patch the hurt and the tapestry expands to includes tears and aches sobs pulled up from your heels on the complicated days then there are the pale blue squares of contentment lazy cross-stitch of routine playful polka dots You are ten dozen patterns in with a heart that tells more truth each time it is broken and still you unpick try a new stitch or drop one to see what this does to the whole.
