She woke up in a hospital bed Family yelling you coulda been dead She didn’t care while her mama cried Didn’t matter to her that she had almost died

Every week I find myself, heavily, halfheartedly, hopelessly, ...alone, in my addiction councellor's office. The clock pounds out the conversation, tick tock tick tock, because quiet honestly I refuse to talk.
