Open Eyes

by Brie
 
Alone, in the night
     I shiver.
Shadows stretch toward
        me from dark corners,
   slowly closing in on
my last glimmer of hope.
I grow smaller, begging
  my covers to envelop
    me
  but they offer no such
        refuge.
"Help..." I force my lips
    to plead. "Save me..."
         Fear grips me.
Then the black collapses
   and I open my
       eyes.
Your face is
      next to mine.
Your body a protective
    shield around me.
           I exhale.
You were always here,
         living in and
     throughout me
Ready to be seen
  if only I would
      open
           my
              eyes.
