Cutting through our knot

⠀⠀⠀Cutting through our knot wasn’t so hard
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀as I’d thought it might be. It left me scarred
⠀⠀⠀because I wasn’t careful with the blade.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀And pardon me the bloody stains I made
⠀⠀⠀by wiping up my mess with your best shirt.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀At least it wasn’t your half getting hurt
⠀⠀⠀and I knew what I risked when we’d both tried
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀and failed alternatives to come untied.
⠀⠀⠀Since scars aren’t deadlier than what I’d thought,
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀it wasn’t so hard cutting through our knot.
