To whom it may concern…

I’m fine. I’ll be okay.

It’s just the thoughts in my head,

that won’t ever go away.

The ones that rattle all night,

As I lie here in bed.

Tick, tick, ticking time bombs.

The ones stuck in my head.

“The words are bleeding wounds.”

The words are bleeding wounds.

Through all the darkened years,

These fears, these painful feelings,

Have brought me the most tears.

To whom it may concern…

I’m fine. I’ll be okay.

It’s just the thoughts in my head,

That won’t ever go away.
