cat's cradle.

I feel like you are still holding onto
your end of the string,
even thousands of miles away

I am still,
watching the string wrap around my body
as it tightens and hits my veins

losing circulation
until I can hear
your heartbeat enveloping mine

this red rope of thread
is swallowing me whole

and while I am wanting you to hold on,

I need you to let go
