Crutch

Rain is imminent I have
got a hurt I need a crutch
that I lean on bleeding I
need a euphoric touch.

The dry taste of food on
my chapped lips stings.
I need rain to know pain;
I know what drug bring.

The absence of reality it
is familiar and famous
in my veins I’ll not blame
others I just need a rush.

Simple systematic suture
of an artery that is cut
it bleeds out into a head;
my thoughts find a rut.

This is not my choice it
has been before though so
I know a way a wind blows
so I set my sail forward go.

I know despair in shadow,
I know it in plain sight now.
So let me take your mind
on my path to numb down.

You want to know what it
is that I turn to that I use?
It is the sight of your face I
my love me you can abuse.

My self torture is profuse,
and other options I refuse.
My mind is in a bliss I move
and ill thoughts I try loose.

For they creep for they call,
the ill thoughts I take in.
I am through now I begin my
friend I need a crutch again.


My dear friends I am going to absent from here for a few days. My grandmother passed this last week. Her funeral is this week. I hurt and I turn here for comfort that I seemingly have trouble finding elsewhere.

I would like to ask you keep me and my family in your prayers. It is a tough time right now. It would be worse without all of you so I’d like to say thank you to everyone for all your continued support. So until later this week I hope you all stay safe and keep writing! Thanks guys.
