Relationships

Relationships are complex

and tightly woven

so that their unravelling

or their fixing are

equally complex

and fraught with

problems unforeseen

that stick out jagged

and bring trauma

like a sharp knife

through cloth.

 

Filled with the binding

strings of trust and the

sharp steel edges of distrust,

relationships are always

wanted but never easy,

stuffed with desire and need

but never fully satisfying.
