Shh! Trying to silence the narrative

in my head. Time to revise an old script,

re-envision scenes, reconstruct the plot,

rewrite from a different POV

eliminate mental debris, delete

meaningless monologues, excess chatter,

modulate shouts of disruptive voices,

mute the unsettling shrillness of soundtrack,

free up space for silence to speak, prompting

fresh conversations, revelatory

rewinding of reel, creating new start

to old story, complete script revision,

subtraction, addition, reclaiming failed

narrative with revitalized plotline.
