    i was hurtin' then...

    one awful day i felt pain in my arm
    and it shot up thru my wrists
    and n-2
    my long lanky fangers

    pain, though physical caused
    mental effect that would not subside
    for this pain made me realize that
    i was unable to sc-sc-sc-
    s c r i be.

    with
    still so much to say i
    felt as

    if
    part of me was
    taken away
    although i might not speak much
    I
    try
    2
    revo-loo-shun-(eyes)
    into my sight when I* scribe--
    and panic
    soon cloaked me
    like the west earth swallows the sun
    12 hours after its rise

    thass the closest i've ever felt to death
    those days I*
    couldn't

    s c r i be.
