Written by Jacob Ibrag

Don’t pull on the loose thread, you aren’t

ready to bear beyond the surface. I share with

you what your mind can digest. Bit by bit, you

drink on the truths I spill. Your thirst increases

by the day, begging for my hand to double your

intake. Careful child, you’re pulling again. The

world you seek may unravel you from within.
