[ NaPo 2017 ] Seam Stress

  
Yeah, we may be in sync
but I have had enough of
this imitation game †
†  
Your fabric is nowhere †
near as tough as you think †
 
Cut from folded cloth †
were shaped the same †
†  
but not really †
†  
I'm the other half †
you wanted to be †
†  
the one who likes to laugh †  
while you wallow in the wash †
cycling through your misery †
†  
wishing one of us dyed †
so the other could take her place †
in the dresser, on the line †
†  
It's a stresser, alright †
but I'll be fine as you continue
your unraveling at the seams †
†
