there is                   a tear
in my                   fabric
started                 as a nick
getting               longer
all the              time
ragged             edges
splitting             ripping
painful             sound
rending            wrenching
threads           hanging
stuffing           showing
guts          spilling
i don’t        know
which       way
to go

I like to take photos and write words ...


  1. I’ll tell you both a secret – it took faaaaaar longer to get it right visually than it did to write the words! But if you liked it, it was worth it 🙂


  2. This is absolutely awesome! The words are brilliant in themselves – the formatting is exquisite. You have a wonderful gift for turning your pain into something so acutely beautiful. I am so sorry that the pain happened – *HUG* –


  3. Heartwrenching….and the way you have written it…so visually….it creates a rip in my heart. Lovely.
