i heard a song today

that reminded me
of my grandmother.
it took her 11 years to die from cancer, that
was supposed to kill her in 6 months
i helped take care of her-
in between changing her diaper
and getting high, i
found the time to watch her suffer
and lose her mind
when i got home, after hearing the song
i slept on the couch for 3 hours

i'm awake now
wishing i could just fall back asleep.
it's sunday
8:23 PM
in january
i am afraid
inside
and it hurts...
