Rude Awakening

You shook me
From my
Deep
Deep
Slumber

As if I cared
The least bit
To leave my comforting surroundings

As if there was
Anything left in me
To give to you, to life

As if I still saw
The good
And hope
And light
That you always said existed

When you knew
(Even better than I did)

That I didn't,
Couldn't,
Wouldn't see

But then I heard you
Whispering my name
Ever so slightly
Through the warm summer breeze

And I felt something
Flutter in my
Long-forgotten soul
That I thought I had left behind
So long ago

Your rude awakening
Was uncalled for

And yet
Here I am-
Still awake.

So thank you
