A gnarl in the carpet.

The carpet was laid
perfectly placed
and there was a gnarl
sticking up
and I tugged
breaking the bond to the floor
and I wondered
what if I pulled it up entirely
and beneath I had seen it
the reason it always felt off
the reason the carpet frayed
to begin with.
There was a small hole in the tile
and I could see it
as I had stuck my face closer towards it
my eye I risked
by bringing it closer
to the spot.
A quick pain had overcome me
as I had pulled my head back
I placed a hand upon my eye
the blood drizzled
filling and bursting
and the blindness
forever a reminder
that some truths and reasons
aren’t worth looking for.

Thanks for reading.
