distant voice calls me through a tunnel

grabbing onto railings on rickety stairs

replying to questions and asking a day to be kind

-all while keeping a calm I'm not used to

every night is like this now

last night I hung up the phone and thought I hadn't in a half-sleep.

I thought I had fallen asleep talking, so when I awoke and realized

I searched frantically for the phone and couldn't find it,

so i leapt up to the light switch to find the phone on the ground

I picked up and called and left a message-

and upon hanging up I realized I had distinctly said goodbye.

I thought I was still talking to you.

No dreams in sleep- Just dreams while I'm awake.
