    stay here

    don't flee these petty attitudes,
    small-minded people,
    reckless dudes.

    that restless nasty,
    inside you.

    stay here.

    feel this thing, this time.

    don't kill it.
    medicate it, smoke it, toke it,
    vaporate it.

    can you sit with pain?
    can you? ...sit with pain?
    can you sit...with pain?

    yeah, you can cry.
    you don't have to explain it;
    i don't need to know why.

    here, let me hold you,
    soothe you,
    move this thang thru you.

    and that can only occur if you...

    stay here.

    this reminds me of a blues song
    ..not because its sad, but because
    it balances intensity with description in such
    a simple yet profound way.

    you made your point with this one! Strum that pen poet!

    Wow. To be that person who will be there for another while they go through what they eventually must. This was quite touching.

    Very deep and powerful piece. I wish someone would have said that to me years ago.
    Loved it.
