• catapulted  from a deep sleep
  • The phone blasted out on the Bedside table
  • Dreary and gluey eyed I peered at the dial
  • My heart leapt with trepidation
  • As It read, withheld number 
  • I wondered
  • A stranger at an ungodly hour 
  • Bad thoughts ring through your mind
  • All fears return you will find
  • You answer, voice trembling
  • Wondering, worrying
  • An unfamiliar voice resounds
  • You answer stuttering stammering
  • And then relief mixed with seething frustration
  • A stranger, a wrong number
  • Back to sleep, relaxed 
  •  Awake To face another day
