There’s a knot in my stomach
which was not what I wanted but
You can’t always get what you want.
But if you try sometimes…
What I need?
Not to feel this way. This knot is not from want
but from need.

Tonight, Mish is hosting quadrille, and she has asked us to write a poem of exactly 44 words featuring the word ‘knot.’ This is the first time I wrote exactly 44 words in the first draft, so I decided not to change it! It may not be much, but it’s the best I can do…(It’s all about the song lyrics this evening, sorry!)
