Tapestry

By Lauren Birch

It’s astounding
When the grey tapestry of your life
Is suddenly aglow with all the colours of the world
Emanating from one single strand

It casts away the shadows of despair
Breaking through the pure black strand of loneliness

It’s astounding
When you suddenly realise that this strand
This single piece of thread
Is the thing you’ve been looking for all along

…and you want to laugh
Because you finally feel alive

…and you want to cry
Because at the same time
You’re so scared that it was all just a dream
That you’ll wake up to the same old greys and blacks as before.

It’s so astounding
That you just want to stay in that moment forever
Gazing at the thread that changed your life
Gazing at that single thread
The thread…which has finally made the world bearable
