Wake up, wake upon day
A night spent at bedside, his daughter a mess. No sleep, this wasn’t new; her heartbeat for years felt irregular at best. Restless, a hell in her mind.
Frantically, I was trying to keep her at peace, a night spent in tears facing down at the floor.
Morning, with silence in tow. I can’t leave nor would I, had I known that Hell waited outside. Closing in fast, blowing in with the wind.
Wake upon day, it’s okay, it’s not yours to control. Wake upon day.
I raised my hands to the sky, my eyes fell down to the shade cast by iron and sky.
