A step, a stitch

A step, a stitch

I have stitched souls together, a trail of tattered crumbs
aching on my heels. I tried to cobble hearts, but my thoughts
congealed as I spoke the hidden words, and the trap
released all those I had stolen. Souls are lighter, loyal
no matter how the embers of the world have tarnished
their radiance. There is a string around my callused finger
all the souls anchored upon it fall behind.
I sing an aria with my razored voice, and they quake
and scatter the dust.
I am the piper and my vengance is longer than this road.
