One Year Ago Today: Blanketed

I have learned to
wear solitude quietly
an old quilt draped
over sharp shoulder blades
engulfed in threadbare
patches of memory
that I worry
with lonely fingertips
softly blurring seams
between amethyst
I straddle the scissor edge
between missing you
and loving you still
aware that either way
I bleed
