you heard it from upstairs

and came down to inspect

the smoke thick

the rubble mountainous

you stood, blinded

until the air began swirling around you

and light of a new color protruded from the wreckage

your arm timidly moved forward

your feet locked into place

so close to becoming whole

you weren’t sure what would happen

you only understood that this was your chance

a flash

you began rising

and you never ceased

a better place for everyone

One thought on “gone
