Sewn back together
This patchwork of time
Cover up the holes
Worn through from praying and sleeping

Tripping on bluffed up moments of forgetfulness
With nothing left to cling to
Finding silver thread coating the outside
Of every clouded moment

When I was away
Pinned down by painful regrets replaced by common thread
Lying at the edge
Finding silver thread on every clouded moment
Sewn back together
This patchwork of time

Nothing to patch up just stitches to show
Nothing to patch up just worn through holes.
