i asked

i asked                                        June 27, 2016
some dreams i know what to do
to keep them from coming true

for twenty-three months and four days
i dream from time to time
of being stoned on hashish
and trapped by my pride and shame
always a reminder
to keep me clean and sober
for i remember
living-death and hell-alive await me

but this dream
this dream needs you
to keep from coming true
for i don’t know how to say
that i asked you not to take your name away
but you did it anyway
and condemned us both
before a court of God

About m

My ego wants to think I'm a writer but my heart knows I'm just another one of God's Kids who sometimes has words to say. 2.5 human kids and 3 feline kids call me Mom. Or Mooooooom. Or mewom, depending which you ask. My most recent completed endeavor was finishing BA's in Religious Studies and American Studies. I don't remember what free time is but I think I like to spend it sleeping or playing in the mud on a river bank.
