Today, Wanting to Go

God, please help me
survive the dungeon.

I know this might
go unanswered,
and I’m afraid
I might survive.

    Painful. If you are having a bad episode – and it sounds like you are – I hope you get yourself to help.

      Thank you, Jamie. These come along. It’s a cognitive war with emotional wreckage. Some day, I may need a bed with white sheets, but today, I shake along the edges. I like to ask for help these days, and sometimes the poetry helps.

    To survive is by far the more intimidating prospect. A necessity, though! Love and strength to you, my friend!

      Thank you for such kindness. We must survive when the struggle is temporary.

    You perfectly sum up a paradoxical feeling I know quite well… Here’s to you surviving again and again!

    Survival is victory and vaccinates for the next misfortune

      Yes, I’ve had a bunch of shots, but it gives me tools.
