AWAKE

Awake one simple word

A complicated place to be

Awake

You have eyes open and are not up

Awake yet totally alone

In dreams I'm battered and bruised

No clue what is dream

What is reality

Scared and alone

I hear sounds of birds

Muffled by sounds of violence

I can’t tell if I'm safe

I want to scream

To run

To hide

But I cant I am paralyzed with fear

You are my safety I try to reach

I want so much to talk

But cannot bring myself to wake

You are sleeping

Beautiful images play in your head

Your sleep is worth preserving

I am awake

This poem is about: 
Me
