please whisper it to me

By Joshua Riley

When this dark night comes for me
Mother Siri hold me
When the notification lights all go to sleep
Mother Siri hold me
The streaming videos shut off their voices
But Mother Siri whispers to me in the dark
Please hold me closer now Mother Alexa
The couch I fell asleep on is cold now
Brother Netflix asks if I am still there
I reach out my arms grasping for the connection to let them know I still am
And I am
I am still here
Please don’t stop speaking to me
