Out of Sight


I always hear
your alarm,
never awaken
to my own.
You think I need
something new,
louder, better able
to wake me 
from deepest sleep,
so I might 
share my secret
with those I love,
keep me from
falling back alone 
into endless night,
while you 
and the world
we know,
slip forever
out of sight.
