Loosely stitched and threatening to unravel

“If you want to destroy my sweater/Hold this thread as I walk away/Watch me unravel…/…I’ve come undone” — Undone by Weezer

When did you realize
that everything falls apart
if you just tug at one loose thread?

How did you know
to just let it be,
not to question,
not to pull?

Did that Beatles song
tell you
or is it just a lesson
that each one of us
needs to learn in our time?
