shy me


Safety lies on the edge of the cloth
shying away
from commitments
dealing with others.

No one sees me
or remembers my name
but I play tease
imagine being any one
of a number of threads
weaving in and out of the fabric
scampering near
but never too close
unraveling at just
the right time.

Back to the sidelines
watching the world pass by.
