She woke up out of the darkness,
eyes snapping open,
she saw.

Her breath came out in tiny gasps,
heart pounding, scared,
she sighed.

She reached across her body,
and put out the fiery alarm,
she touched.

She hid beneath her warm sheets
and last night’s shampoo,
she smelled.

She padded downstairs in bare feet
to fetch some breakfast,
she tasted.

With a smile, she turned on the radio,
beautiful news burst forth,
she heard.

She believed.
