Fretting Away by Christine Swiderski

Fretting away

Wringing of ideas
Fretting away time
Berating the circumstance
Making my worst fear
The reality wrenching
my heart as I watch
Life slowly leave
a vibrant love
Should we have darned
the sock before it became
thread barren
Now its useless substance
which once was new
with possibilities is now
tattered emotions
Depleted of rational thought
Anger clings to resentment
Forgiveness is afar off
Or may be not possible
Trust is shredded
As heart and soul
ripping those who were
one flesh apart
now they are two souls
No longer one
