A poem a day for 2013 - day 28 - Self talk

I will not crawl into hell
On pinky toes and fingernails
I will breathe
Remind myself that moments pass
Even this one
I squeeze eyes shut
Try to see tomorrow's sun
Shining so clean on my face
I call a friend and let the words fall
Out of order
Under breath
Repeating/leaving out words
Friends understand already anyway
Get me
Just get me
Don't fix this 
Breathe with/for me
Take this headache away
Pee for me
Believe with me
Help me sit/stand/understand/care/live/see
Friends are friends because
They try the impossible
Again and again
I hang up 
Resist the urge to shout 
From the street light
We are all one 
You hateful motherfuckers!
