Ties That Bind

sunset rope

When loose ends don’t meet

and dreams fray,

life unravels.

Slip knots slip

and coils uncoil

because living is not linear;

it can’t be neatly hung

from pillar to post.

Even tying the knot

is no guarantee,

for when hearts shrink,

lassoes lengthen.

But here’s the twist –

once discover the end of your rope,

and you will find

a no-strings-attached

place to hang your heart;

these are the

Ties that Bind.
