9-1-1

i thought it would be different

i thought i’d find kindness

someone to guide me through

but i got coldness

a clinical voice, sharp and unfeeling

maybe they need the distance

frozen armor around their heart

to shield them from my pain

my panic

my fear

but i needed help

you were supposed to help
