knitxcore.: you've really got a hold on me.

you've really got a hold on me.

i didn't wear socks yesterday, i didn't have any clean.
on my way to school, i spilled coffee all over my shirt.
all of the seats on the bus were taken and i had to stand.
i'm pretty sure my math test gave my a peptic ulcer.
i'll know when i start coughing up blood, i guess.
i dropped my pens and pencils in a sewer grate.
i shared my lunch with someone who didn't have anything to eat, so i was really hungry.
defeated, i found a bench and sat down.
i flipped through my ipod hoping to find something 'happy'.
i never really listened to smokey robinson until then.
i wasn't even sure who smokey robinson was.
it didn't matter.
at that moment; the sun peeked from behind a tree, a few leaves spun around in a windy circle, and ol' smokey breathed new life into my rotten day.
the cold breeze on my naked ankles finally felt refreshing.
thank you smokey.

I'm sorry you had such a rotten day! It's so nice to be able to enjoy the little things. That song always has a special place in my heart.

I once heard this song driving to work at 5 in the morning. It has a way of filling you up.
