Hanging On

Image

By Michele Habel-Coffey

 

Letters in a box

Letters in the mail

Letters in a sentence

Letters leave a trail

Of promises forgotten

Of lies that breed false hope

Of toys under the Christmas tree

Of yesterdays that toy with me

And playtime that is over

And wartime near a truce

And the winner and the loser

And neck within the noose

Hanging on a fading breath

Hanging on a prayer

Hanging on, just hanging on

Dangling in the air
