Pencil –

Split my veins

Sing my pain in red

little stitches – a

criss-crossed road on

my thump-thump engine.


Pencil –

Strike my eyes

Be my guide

instead – your prayers bright

as stars lighting up my valley

of scars making them ripple

like the milky way.


Pencil –

Take my fingers

Lace them with your

singers of faraway secrets

and dreams I’ve not yet met

and told to hold and hold.


Pencil –

Love me and my hollowness

For I may yet be rescued

from my restlessness

Show me your land where

bones don’t ache

and hearts don’t tire –

I have only my fire

to give

Pencil –

Show me how to live.
