massive tangle of threads
the intricate fibers of life
if they all fused into one
that's what this would feel like

all uneven, awkward seams
nothing lines up quite right
less like something tailored
more like unsettled autumn leaves
but somehow, much more fitting

sort through the threads
knit them through the puzzle pieces
sow them together to complete the picture
but the patterns don't match, you can't recreate the creases
so which is worse, unmended or incomplete?
because this is only patchwork

but it all serves it's function
you become so confused and if you aren't
you just aren't wondering
answers come but then they never end
and they become questions again
and they fuse into one big connection
that doesn't fit
We're only strays.
