I'm unravelling.
Some spots of me are
Worn thin from constant
Use, becoming threadbare.
Loose ends stick out of my
Skin, catching occasionally.
The strings on my heart
Seem to have snagged
On you,
But I don't mind.
This tangled mess in my
Chest has become simply
A leash,
And you are my holder.

5/5

I love your poem, especially the part where you say "...This tangled mess in my chest has become simply a leash, and you are my holder." The poem holds a deep meaning about being controlled by a person and seemingly to just let your heart be as it is.

Your poem rocks!
