Becoming 1

I slept, warm and safe,
And woke into pain.
The dreams that troubled me
became nightmares in waking.
The clouds in my coffee
became a hurricane in my heart
and swept me away
swept away my life
swept away those who loved me.
The ocean wave in my face
that shocked me awake
swept away my sleeping self
and soaked into every pore of my skin.
But now
I am awake
no longer dreaming towards death.
