can I

Can I write
Until my pen dries
Until my pupils dilate
And my brain itches
Until my fingers rust 
And my glasses dust
Until my heart twitches

Can I scream 
Until my throat sores
Until my lungs shrivel
And my voice disappears
Until my veins bulge
And my overwhelm is capitulated
Until my eyes tear

Can I love
Until wars end
Until the universe bends
And death revives
Until a child matures
And hatred cures
Until forever dies
