No Light

Crawling down a tunnel
Searching for a prayer
Reaching for somebody
Knowing no one’s there.

Straining for a flicker
Stretching for a dream
No one hears me crying
Or even hears me scream.

Crawling down a tunnel
Praying for the light
Hoping for the morning
But knowing only night.

The darkness overwhelms me
The silence takes my breath
It feels like forever
Or even more...
like death.

Caren E. Salas
