Lightly stitched

Lightly stitched,
we are,
With heavy hands, thick knuckles, thin skin.

A heavy heart, but lightly stitched.

We tenderize small wounds in the callousing walls of our heart chambers.
Between one another-

When the noise fades away, leaving only silence to weigh,
we cling-
to the fraying stitches,
