A Silent Crash

Alan R

Paralysed by thoughts

I lowered the volume

Of the TV show

Unbearably so

I should really wake up


I am staring still

But soon the reality

Will shake my core 

Unnervingly so

I should really wake up


The show is still on 

I must remember that

It will end without me

Unspeakably so

I should really wake up


They are calling my name

I must respond

It will be too late 

Concerningly so

Who will wake me up?
