Poem -

The stitch known as yesterday

The stitches 
known 
as yesterday.
+++++++++++++
My life has become
An
Odd Matter of determining
which
Mirror I should trust.

(and in a world of so many
Mirrors
thus, 
which Reflection here is
just?!)

+

lo,

Tear me from 
this
Pit I pray..

This Pit of Sloth
and 
Moral Decay!!

Or send me back
in 
Time to mend!!

( the stiches Known
As Yesterday.)

Hey J....I do not keep count of how many times I have emotionally needed stitches in my life...Going back would not be good for me...lol  The mirror is always a liar in my opinion...changing flippantly.  I think time forward only helps mending...but then again, I am still a work in progress.  What do I know...I always feel the dark pain of your life in your writes...but they are always very poignant.  I enjoyed. xo ;)
