Calling you up. You’re still in bed oh please why you can’t you get up? I’m on my own today. You’re drifting away on a sea of pills and booze. I wish that you would change and come alive for me. I need your friendship please. And the bones they rattle inside, inside my head and the words come slowly. Please try to help me friend, oh I need you, Dear Claire how I need you. Give me a light. I wish you would come outside, there’s no one to see the way that you have changed. I wish I could say the things you need to hear. I should just stay and comfort you today. I don’t know what to say.
