Picture of beautiful

I Hope that
you have felt that
This silver needle
the one That
Sewed up your jagged cut when
The thorn stuck itself in your seam and torn
A big long gash
Injury and pain to you
Who will refurbish
you thought
I hope someone

the someone becoming this needle
It did
and I hope
That you have felt that
it secured the details
handled the aesthetics
all of it To your liking.
That it Returned you
to rights. Mended you.
Made you Repaired.
That you return to your

And when The needle sews next
I offer up the hope
it will do the same
