A Cry in the Night

Thrashing, kicking, calling
Out for help-

Falling into a bottomless pit
Landing in the middle of a nightmare

Way out, there is a way out-

Reach for the phone
Automatically dial-
Still not awake.

Help, help, help
A voice answers-

Turn on the light.

Oh, that hurts, but
The nightmare continues.

Calling my name-
Over, over from the phone.

Finally answer with their name,
One last statement-

You're awake-
