Despair and repair
Her tipping point attained
predictably
she went to pieces

stress shattered by sheer volume of omnidirectional demand

tangled strings
a knotted marionette
disjointed jerked
twitched
spun
inarticulate
impuissant
incommunicado

unable to express her distress
silent suffering no longer shouldered
dislocated dialogue disconnected from the normal narrative

stuck
shibari still now
in stasis, subdued

then rigging wrapped
wrenched
drawn dreadful, drowning, down

nadir

finding?

forgiveness unfurling
flying unfettered

freedom to face her flaws
accepting imperfection

comprehension
finally embracing “as thyself”

strengths unsuspected
seeks help

finds her voice
“a little help here. please”

and fitting fragile fragments together
lightly with lacquer
weaves threads of gold

Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery by mending the areas of breakage with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum.
