I Woke Up


Christie Houston

Life was good and you were kind 
I didn't feel like melon rind 
Love was real and so were you 
Grass was green, sky was blue 
Trees grew tall along the road 
I kissed a prince and found a toad 
Flowers died, the sea was black 
Reality just seemed to lack 
I once was happy, then woke up 
Holding nothing but an empty cup.
