Dead and Alive

I once heard a story

About a widow

Whose husband

Was still alive


He hadn’t died

Like dead

But his mind

Stopped

Thinking

And he was paralyzed

Quiet

Numb


The widow

Wasn’t having none

Of her husband’s mind

Gone dead and quiet


She started asking

Questions

And he started to respond

Awakened

Something

In

Him


The more she asked

The more he answered

The more he answered

The more he thought

The more he thought

The more he created

The more he created

The more he became

The more he became

The more he loved


The widow never widowed

And the husband

Loved


His mind reawakened

From a broken pain

All because of

Her asking questions


He came alive
