1:45 A.M.

It's 1:45 a.m.
I just got in.
there are four,...
yes four messages
on the machine.
It's 1:45 a.m.
I just got in.
It's her...
and I don't want to know.
Something must be wrong
but I'm too afraid
to find out.
It's 1:45 a.m.
I just got in.
I called her back.
she's crying
I'm scared.
Too afraid to move.
I knew it wouldn't be good.
It's 1:45 a.m.
I just got in.
People don't call this late
unless it's bad.
So I've learned.
She's my mother.
I'm her daughter.
She's scared.
I'm scared.
She's crying.......
I'm crying now too.

well spitfire, I hope that the phone call did not bring too much bad news. I think everyone dreads those phone calls. take care. As serenity said the poem hit home,
thanks for sharing.
