A thread in our lives
That never unravels
Pinching at the seam
Of our civilization

As an unhealed cut
Bleeds, even in dribbles
Pains us until
We learn to ignore

We can watch
And not see
We can see
But not register

Each one matters
Loved ones shattered
Potential lost
Over before the bell

A flame
Might flicker
A flame
Might end

Light it again
Open the cut
Pinch the seam harder
Feel the pain
