Woke up and it no longer hurts, saying your name.
I’m okay.” by

I’m still waiting to wake up and find out it was all a horrible dream. But I know that’s not going to happen.
don’t get sick,
there are good people out there,
that won’t mind when you call them
people out there,
used to smoke,
tip a little too much sometimes,
things that happened
a while back
