In the middle of the night

I wake to find darkness surrounding and me alone.

No one to comfort me,

No one else calls this home.

When I wake from the nightmare that still holds my fear

There is no one to tell,

No one hears.

I sit alone all by myself

Thinking through the mess that I just awoke from.

The startling realization that I am alone,

With dangers to face on my own.

Nightmares turn to a reality of their own,

When no one is here to comfort me,

When I am totally alone.
