Lines and Patterns

I grabnapo2014button1
reach for straws
try to find a place
to fit in

Hands pretend
to care
but lines are thrown
out on their terms

I look
for somewhere
I can slip into a

Where I can be part
of a weaving
formed into one

There are signs
that I may be allowed
to stay

But only
within the
box of their own
design and
not allowed
to color
outside the line

Trust must be
given away
meted out
and not with
too much hope

It is better
to build

your own brick
where doors
can be locked

and windows
safer to be alone

than teased
into thinking
you are worthy

Day 26 – NaPoWriMo – almost there.
