You ask my love why do I fret
you have woven yourself into my heart
Should you go I’ll be bereft
fragile threads holding me falling apart
I’ll unravel like a skein of yarn
tumbling down endless stairs
a tattered tangled soul, going nowhere

dVerse Poets Pub: Quadrille Fret

  1. I love how fret has unravelled in your quadrille, Linda! It’s delicate and beautiful. I especially love the alliterative sounds in ‘fragile threads holding me falling apart’ and ‘tattered tangled soul’. That final image of a soul going nowhere is so sad.

  2. WiRed for Love Each String Rose
    Fret to Lose NoW as A Symphony
    Becomes ‘Them’ An Orchestra of ‘Us’
    still the Music is Ours
    Still the Song We Create
    More the Love We continue
    to Note
    as Us We Dance
    Sing Free to Be LoVE
    Our Own MuSiC NoW..:)
