Writing is a thing 

To keep you alive

On a level with eating

And drinking and breathing.

Journaling as contributing

To proper bowel habits

Poems as supplemental vitamins

Long letters to lovers

As morning exercise 

Routines. I’m not necessarily

Talking only of staving off suicide

Although that certainly applies

It’s a different kind of death

The quiet one of every 

Day dying inside
