I write for you

Cursed letters ink
from my quill
piercing the paper
again my own will
like sand enclosed
within my heels
sinking on the shore.

Come to me strange
letters rumbling through
a sentence without an utter
of breath to vibrate
my vocal chords.
String me a tune
of carless wit
and drunk rants.
Ignore the hush
of each cringing chant
echoing through
empty rooms.

I write for you.
I write for you.
I write for the lover
who speaks no grace,
for the mute
trapped in the chase,
of a man wrinkling out
words to breathe into life.

For the friend who stays mute,
I write for you.
I write for the secrets
sinking in your chest
growing through fire
and suffocating your lungs
in a fume of red smoke
enflamed in your body
burning through the words
spoken underneath lies
and a package of cigarettes.

Remember, I write for you.
I write for all of you.
