Praying To Curl Up & Die - Poem by Liz Munro

Drowning in a tidal sea

Encased in black darkness

Praying to just curl up and die

Ripping scared wrists with a knife

Engulfing sadness numbing the mind

Slowly slipping away

Sliding deeper into the Black Dogs mouth

Intruding eyes that don't understand

Opening veins and waiting for death to claim

No longer happy and wanting to live life.

    My friend Mark has multiple sclerosis he is 46. He lives in an assisted living complex and a motorized wheelchair. Sometimes Maria, his caretaker, can't make it to get him out of his bed and into his chair. She tells him it's tough raising two kids on 7 dollars an hour. Mark lays in his waste till Maria can come and clean him up and bathe him. Sometimes he waits two days. I asked him why he doesn't call me, that I would rather help him than let him lay there. He said he didn't want to trouble me. He only has use of one arm now. He can talk but must take breaths between sentences. He is taking classes at CSULB, he even takes a Karate Class at a nearby dojo. He says he does the katas in his mind. He was young once. He played football. Had a girlfriend. He went to Europe in his late teens and traveled. When he returned from Europe he became ill. He found out at age twenty three he had M.S. I wonder what keeps him going sometimes. (Report)Reply
