Diminished

You are not the kind
We are looking for.
You do not fit in.
The thread on the spool unwinds
Onto the floor
Is there time/space enough to begin again?
And what if I'm to continue unraveling,
Changing into what they want of me,
My heart from my true self will go traveling,
A bare spool is all there'll be.
