I Heard a Phone Buzz…

The buzz from my phone

jolts me awake

and I stare first at you

before I attempt to take

the call coming through

that beckons me back

to the lonely and real world

that somehow seems black.

I swipe my finger left

and throw the phone to the floor

and turn back to you

to be in the light once more.
