I see your strings

I see your strings,

I have seen their knots and worked to see them sort.

I have followed their trails to find where they go.

I have placed confidence in your placing,

Trusting in your wiring and build.

I have devoted a life to know their weaving,

To uncoil their too perfect design.

Too perfect.

I see your strings but not your pull.

Too many a trail ends in more length,

Too many a knot too tight to fix.

Too many a lifted shadow producing a darker dark.

A blacker black.

I ask only for you not to answer.

Where are you?

Where are you!?

How much longer is the length?

How much tighter the knot?

What use is the test if the you know not the answers?

I see your strings! I know your strings!

I am a knot you pull too tight.

Take care for the knot may slip!

I see your strings, but not your pull.
