Poem: I Pray You Wake Up

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

poem-i-pray-you-wake-up

Like the twilight on a calm morning
to a thunderstorm raging,
you changed instantly.

No understanding,
I am left bewildered,
I do not recognize you,
it’s like watching a horror movie
waiting for the ending to be over.

I hope you find yourself,
before it is too late
to put the pieces of your life
back together.

I will always remember
the moments we shared,
thinking fondly of the man I once knew
but I will not acknowledge
the monster you have become.

I pray you wake up,
not for me
but for yourself,
hoping you discover
life has a lot more to offer.
