there's gold in them hills.

I found blisters on my hands.

at the base of my knuckles on the inside of my palm
there are little places
where the skin is worn down
and flaking off like old paint

I spent seven hours driving yesterday
and I held onto the wheel so tightly
that my skin has started to fall away

then I got here
and let go of the wheel

and I finally realized
how tired my hands have been
for so long
because I hang onto things so tightly.

I have to do this here, since I deleted fbook and can't physically push those buttons to "Like" things anymore.

But yeah... LIKE.
