Unravelled

A subtle    
gentle tightness.  
Barely the hint of a little tug.
Just enough to make me †  
stop †
and †
ponder... †
A slight glance around †
Hmm, peculiar... †
Freeze, just a second. †
Wondering, †  
what was that? †  
shrug it off, †
Honestly, barely noticeable. †
†  
Tightness increasing, †
feel a tiny pull. †  
Itís nothing, I think †
Definitely nothing, I assure †  
Get it together, I demand †
But, †
Lingering... †
Just a seed of doubt. †  
Hmm †
Peculiar... †
†  
Yanking, †
Jarring, †
Head snaps up. †
Frantically panning... †
Now! WHAT was that? †  
Attention captured, sustained. †
Nothing there. †  
Confusion settles in, †
must be in my head. †  
Tricky tricky, my mind. †  
Well played... †
†  
Tightness increasing, †
pulling stronger. †
This isnít funny, I contest. †  
Leg jolts! †  
Leaping up! †  
Frantically scanning. †
Nothing, still... †
Anxiety rising †
Doubt increasing †  
Paranoia introduces. †  
What the... †
Catching breath, †
Head still spinning, †
losing your mind love, I minimize. †
†  
Yanking aggravates †
leg pulls out, †  
balance shifts. †
Ok! Ok! Now, what is THIS? †
Iím not crazy, I insist! †  
Diligently searching, †
nothing...How?! †
Panic floods. †
Paranoia blooms. †
Frantically breathing, †
This is nonsense, I ruminate. †
Confusion summons tears. †
What is happening? Fearfully, I cry. †
†  
Anticipating, †
Prepared this time. †
Waiting... †
Nothing. †
must be gone, I relax †  
Hmm peculiar... †
Mischievous mind, †
Shame on you. †
†  
Tightness returning, †  
jarring little tug. †
Again? I fear †  
Looking down, this time †
My strings a mess, I notice. †
This canít be good, I stress. †  
But how? I ponder †  
Peculiar... †
Staring down †  
Lost in wonder.. †
Pulling strengthening, †
The string lengthening, I watch. †
Or WHO? I resolve. †  
†  
Following the string, †
Until our eyes meet. †
You! I scream. †
All this time, it was you? I pry †  
But why? I †cry †  
Silence... †
And just like that, running ensues. †  
Forcefully following behind. †
Please donít, my strings! I remind. †  
†  
Pace increases, †
I canít keep up. †
Tripping, stumbling... †
Slow down, my strings! I beg. †
No acknowledgement, silence remains. †  
Exhaustion settles in. †
Youíre unraveling my strings, I warn. †  
Looking back, you smirk. †
Shock †
You wicked thing! I yell. †  
†  
Dashing, jumping, twisting... †
Struggling to keep up. †  
Exhaustion overtakes †  
My strings..., I warn, once more. †  
You laugh. †
Speed accelerating. †
Frantically, sporadically, illogically weaving, running... †
Dragging behind †  
Defeated †  
†  
Pace slows †
Itís too late, I think †  
You turn, †
Panic floods you. †
No! No! No! You shout †  
Stomping, pouting. †  
Serves you right, I think. †  
Frantically you gather my strings. †
Fall to your knees †  
and weep. †
I tried to warn you, I mutter †  
Shouldíve listen, I shrug. †
†  
And just like that, †
Youíre alone... †
†Not my fault, †  
You did this, on your own.

Author's Note
Stepping outside my comfort zone. A little more abstract than I tend to write. I had fun with this. Hope you enjoy it.
