Never right, Always left

Screams from above
While I search in the darkness
Crawling on hands and knees
No moonlight to guide
Desperate movements
Seeking the shelter of a known
No discernible help
The echoes deceive
They yell, “We’re over here!”
“Where? Where is here?” I reply.
“HERE! Look up!”
I respond with frustration, “Up!? But only the sky is up!”
Clumsily gathering to stand
Grasping the air for an arm, a hand
Something, someone
But no one remains
Did I take too long?
Am I in the wrong place?
Maybe…I just said the wrong thing
