I saw the first light shining off the buildings through the window while you were still reclining, and I saw you get up and I saw you deciding what to wear to your job that you should be resigning. I heard you make a pot of coffee cause I know that if you didn’t you’d be feeling pretty groggy. Then I felt you kiss me on the cheek, then the bolt turned over and I went back to sleep. And the evening and the morning were the first day, and today my name is Sorrow, but tomorrow I’ll change.
You called me a couple hours later as I drank the coffee that you left in the refrigerator. You were watching the clock till it was time for lunch and I had to confess I had no idea what time it was. I said that I was still in bed and you said that you wished that you could be with me instead. Then I said that I’d start working soon, then we hung up the phone and I napped the entire afternoon. And the evening and the morning were the first day, and today my name is Sorrow, but tomorrow I’ll change.
You came back a little after six and till seven you were telling me your boss is such a dick. Then till eight I complained that I can’t work when it rains, then till nine I confided I can’t work when the sun shines. At ten we got out of bed, took a walk around the block so that we could clear our heads. It was eleven when we switched off the light, as I dozed off I watched the clock as it came out at night. And the evening and the morning were the first day, and today my name is Sorrow, but tomorrow I’ll change.
