Proclivities, destinies
Still got 'em at 54
Fatherhood is gratitude
Inner Harbor, Baltimore

Bipolar my whole adult life
I seek the foreign shore
Tired, hesitating
Forgotten. Forgotten lore.
Lord, take my life from the earth,
To heaven, Lord, lead me there:
The weight of life’s crosses, Lord,
For me is too much to bear.

Help me carry life's crosses,
When I find life hard to live:
Needed wisdom, I need Lord,
It sufficient to me give.

I ask you Lord to help me,
Especially when there's strife:
Help me Lord to not give up,
Help me when hard I find life.

The virtues, Lord that I need,
To me give them, Lord I plead.

Stay here
when everything says run.
Stay here
when the jaw grinds shut.
Stay here
when the breath runs thin.
Stay here
when you're out of your skin.
Stay here
when the drink calls quietly.
Stay here
when the voice says spitefully,
"you're not enough"
because
when it comes to this stuff,
running feeds the fire
and true healing requires
staying here.

Something had died
you were wide-eyed and beautiful
I still remember your smile
so innocent and wild
what happened
where are the wings of that child
I am not blind
though my heart is broken
my feelings are fine
my soul looms
for you are always
on my mind.

Sabretooth slivers
on
a
jagged edge
caught in a trap my nightmare ends
flesh in a jam jar
honey
in
my bed
dreaming your way
my
lover
my
friend.

To finish your own life by hand,
May seem like the right thing to do.
But to free yourself from this land,
Is to imprison those that love you.
