2016 Nov PAD Chapbook Challenge Day 9 – ‘Call Me at 3am’

insomnia

Yesterday’s prompt: Write a ‘Call me (Blank) poem’

Call me at 3am

Call me at 3 in the morning,
Tell me it’ll all be okay
As I lay wide-eyed worrying
Over words from another life
Said to faces lost to time,
Or over crises yet to come
That could be mere creations
Of a sleep-deprived mind.

Call me at 3 in the morning,
As I pointlessly toss and turn over
Whether I made the right call
In that quick snap decision
Of nearly a decade ago,
Or if I could have fought more
To keep the crumbling status quo
From falling right under my feet.

Call me at 3 in the morning,
When I wonder the point of it all
And whether it’s even worth
All these sick and tired tears.
But when I hear your soothing voice
The world makes sense again,
And your words soon drown out
My demons for another day.
