If I could write four words and it was over
What would be the phrase?
If I could write four words and it would be over
How could I make it right
Would I want to make it right
Does it have to be right?
If I had to write four words and it was over
He would be redeemed
She would be ready
They would both be full of hope
And four strings would align with notes of depth and harmony
I could lay it all down in peace
I could stop saying forever
I could stop saying someday
And it would simply be now
Four words, four notes, four paragraphs, four chapters, four sounds
Four words and the gate is open
Its over and done with
No guilt, no doubt
No more in the mire, no labored breath or weighted shoulders
A slow dissolving into doing nothing
Or doing something new
Four words, four breaths, and a new creature is born
Complete, autonomous, to shakily stand on its feet
To grow wings or tumors, bad habits or nasty rumors
Free to handled, free to be held the wrong way
For the wrong reasons, for the right one
For more than just me
Just four more
Do I collapse, do I crumble
Do I remember the chills and nausea
As they rolled around and emptied out of me
Too heavy to be anything more than pinned to the bed
Such a crazy, thick illusion
Four . . . tiny . . . words
And time is captured
