Rain

I like to listen to Alice in Chains
when it rains,
and watch the water run sideways
across my window.
Really down in a fucking hole.
Stuck thinking about
a million different things
that I can’t control or change.
Makes me feel insane,
or at least slightly unstable,
even though I know that eventually
the tables will turn.
Eventually.
Or not.
I can’t be sure.
And I’m really down in a fucking hole.

  3. The things you cannot change, end up being changed-just that it happens one excruciating step at a time. In the meantime, bottoms up!

    Like the good Lord says…
    All things are possible through Alice in Chains.
    Especially when down in a hole
    Here’s something brand new from AIC from a couple weeks ago.
    If this doesn’t cheer you up… you probably need a monkey. πŸ™‚
