Sara Twigg-Patterson

Hankies softened to comfort
Capture tears.
Lack containment of collective emotions,
Slipping through noticed,
Not always understood.

There are the tears,
The deconstructive emotions,
Bearing the burden.
Wired, numb, immobilised.

The initials of the possessor,
He is beside me day and night,
In the shadows,
Crossing my path, cowering, waiting,
Always the opportunist.

Stitched with childhood freedom,
Acceptance, warts, and all.
