stay with me

stay with me. 
I have never heard those words 
spoken to me. 
not until I fainted 
from a state of panic, 
knowing that Jesus 
never had to worry 
about tetanus. 
my. god. 
a few seconds can seem 
like an eternity 
when you’re in too deep. 
to think that shots 
used to phase me. 
I’d gladly take them all 
to muster up my words 
and tell you to stay 
because who knows 
when the rust 
will bring my decay?
