Silence fell upon a fire
forming a knot for desire
joining fear’s end to questions held
in a circle of hesitation from words misspelled.
Confusion showcased its sapphire
funneling hurt through sadness’ gyre
joining loss’ end to answers misheard
in conversation’s corners from doubts unshared.
Silence joins fear and confusion in an eyre
to overlap forming tragedy’s dire
scissor that cuts relations’ geld.
Communication keeps that scissor’s knot unweld.
Understanding is a heartfelt wire
tying compassion’s delicate spire
to kindness’ shire and homestead.
Yet only sincerity can join instead
what fear and confusion cut out or bled.
Use your scissors for those who hand it to you
but extend your wire to those who hold on to you.
Life is yours to tailor.
