Quilts and Guilt

Chains
Of obligation
Link by link
Grow heavier
Until you sink.
Not who I thought
I would be
Hidden
Covered by life
And other's wishes
Gathering Dreams
I wrap them around me
Like Grandma's quilt
To be warm again.

Now, this I love - just love the quilt - that just says everything. I got a home made quilt a very long time ago for a twin bed in the guest room from a family member I had met for the first time and still have that quilt 30 years later. I have so treasured the memory of this lovely work of art. I love your quilt.

Hell, that was good! Your poetry is excellent and so is the quilt. See what happens without the inner critic?
