Strings unwind without a doubt to hold them in place.

Uncurled and unfurled.

Twisting in reverse.

Pieced together and separated again.

Strings unwind

Without a doubt 

To hold them in place

Uncurled and unfurled

Twisting in reverse


Together and separated 


Lacing up hearts 

Is hard work

With these broken strings
