if only

if only

they didn’t know

just how this goes

algorithms

threads of silk

torn at hearts

sewn up

broken

arteries

will they mend

like roads

they know

with scars

written on

& in

this mortal skin

they coil 

around

the night

repeat

again

if only 

they didn’t know

just how this goes
