Gordian Knot

Gordian_Knot

Are you also Great?

Our lives entwined little by little
thread by thread and year by year
here a rug and there a sofa
a dog, a painting, a child
until it all became one,
a Gordian knot of strands
that thickened over time
imprinting onto each other
guiding and shaping the skeins
into a complex whole
that puzzled the greatest minds
and looked to endure till death did us part
’till you brought her in
and she cut the chariot free
with a single stroke.
