Thread (an acrostic poem)

Twisting herself into knots

Heather tried to bind her feelings

Reasoning while her life was unraveling

Enabled her to look at the patterns emerging

And stitch something together that was quite beautiful out of tragedy

Daring someone else to make it through the eye of her needle

Grand (an acrostic poem)

Go big or go home meant Lilly was going home

Reaching for the strap she felt the subway lurch away from the station

At least she had come close, or at least she tried to convince herself of that

Now it was over and her bed would be the only one calling

Daring her dreams to try to be that big again she began to silently cry
