Sorry Sister

1991 - 1992

Sorry Sister

Sleeping silently
Suddenly awake.
Who is that crying out?
It is my sister.
I hate it.  So much.
Run to her!  Stop!
Fear.  I can't.
Terror.
Mouth gaping wide,
But no sound comes from me,
Only silent whispers
That no one hears.
My pillow soaks up my tears
And muffles my cries.
But not yours.
I'm so sorry, sister.
I can't move.
I can't help you.
I love you, I do.
Silence.
Sleep.
Tomorrow is another normal day.
