The ball of yarn
that I've kept for many years,
has officially unravelled,
presenting all my greatest fears.
For years I had them bundled,
neatly in a ball,
and it wasn't until recently,
I couldn't continue to stall.
This wasn't caused my me,
as why would I begin,
to unravel a flawless system,
in that I see no win.
But it was the cat who caused the chaos.
The cat of death and sorrow,
bringing endless pain and hurt,
until I could no longer see a tomorrow.
He pulled my life all out of wack,
taking a once single untangled string,
and creating a mess of loose ends,
which he then began to fling.
Out with routine,
out with content,
innocence is destroyed,
and here is a perfectionist's descent.
