write back to life

pen in hand
(fingers over keyboard),
one stroke at a time,
scratch out
(delete),
try a different letter configuration.
read aloud
or never read.
just keep adding one
letter after another
after a space
after a coma
after a
full stop.

until we’re bled out.

then there’s room for life.
even if only momentary.
but the hope is there.
room gets bigger
with each stroke
till there’s only life.
