Tall Hello

Tall Hello (Draft 1)

Everything hurts so much, but
I can’t help but have your wine
’cause you pour out to me
to make me high with you, a little tingle
that I can feel like a morning song

or maybe it’s too much, but
I have your giggle to have when
the sun rises again, and

if you stay with me
i know I could rise on time
to be your sunflower and
a tall hello.
