April 1986


a hole

black and deep

just barely made out

just barely in time

almost fallen

just held back

almost dead

alive by a thread

almost gone

but life restored

to shame


oh God!

forgive me

for all that I am


oh my friends!

love me still

and pray


I struggle not with flesh and blood

but with the very hounds of hell

I need you all so much

please stay near
