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.
