I have a black old sweater
some of you may know it
you've seen me wear it so many times,
too many... some might say.
it has a few holes
the sleeves are almost falling apart
there's a pink decolored spot
on the left side, near the stomach,
where bleach fell on it.
but it's my favorite sweater
and I still wear it very often
in fact I'm wearing it right now
while I write these lines
and though I don't attach myself to things
there are some that no matter how much you try
you can't completely replace
and you will always love
and you will always miss
after they're gone

before I get misunderstood, this is just a metaphor about people who stay with you, no matter if they need to somehow get out of your life.
I couldn't care less about the sweater

Even though this is about people I have felt this way about objects before

This rings true on so many levels. It brings tears to my eyes. </3

Comfortable clothes are like some people in those regards. There are those few we come to know in ways that are difficult to describe. Nice piece.

:clap:This was a joy to read!!....
The last thing I loved was a cotton sundress....covered in the tiniest flowers on a black background,,,It lasted 8 years of continuous wearing,,,I'd like to say that it fell apart as I was wearing it one day....but it wasn't that exciting:D.....I picked it up to iron it and it just fell apart...I felt bereft!
