The Life Cycle of a Ball of Yarn

The top of a hill was my starting point

I could see my whole world laid out from above


My yarn tightly knitted into a hard ball

I rolled over mountains and through waterfalls


I started to wonder if I’d ever find

a path that would bring me peace of mind?


Suddenly I saw you - majestic and bright

I rolled to get closer and hinted a smile!


You leaped for the final and ran out of yarn

The end of the line - your tip touching mine


I followed your trail perhaps to find out

If you were the one I was destined to find


The roads you roamed through hell and back

looked perfectly straight from the start of your track.


...which sadly turned out to be the end of mine.

chariethomas7: I love the plot line on how it's not just how Elizabeth has to deal the her lover but her ex husband and child. I personally scared that she would get caught with her child but not Ben. I would love if this story can continue. The ending is making me want more.
