Constant Belonging

Moulded leather feet

marital as those laces unending

began to weave, dictating the vows

in material, aesthetically strung

beside my fingers,

the draping knot tripped

below my tough coat,

falling towards pavement,

unconscious and disregarding,

tiptoeing back to the perceived years

that are mine.

Hi Cynthia, thank you for your comment. I could go into tons of detail about the meaning behind it but sometimes I think a poem is best left unpicked, thus I shall leave you to interpret it how you choose.
Thanks again for reading,

This is a most intriguing metaphor and, I think, well-turned.
