You look at me with wild eyes
willing me to say something
anything at all really.
You are hoping to find
a magic cure in my words.
if only they could take away the panic in your mind.
I know you don’t believe me
but if you can just get through this night
tomorrow will be different.
This is not magic
it is the difficult truth.
Tomorrow will have hope
written on the rays of the rising sun.
Those wide eyes will relax
in the morning light of day
when you can finally see properly
and the unknown shadows of the night have faded.
This moment will not last forever.
Your thoughts won’t always feel so uncontrollably wild.
So still your scared mind
Take a deep breath with me
It is going to be alright
You just have to get through tonight.
