While You Were Gone

while you were gone
I walked in smoke
as you spoke
in tiny motions
to the tick of a clock

drawing a cord
you took me there
forever filled with fear
and dead, but I’m here—
weaponless and alone

I was with you
when you fell
to enemies in the dark
and found the arc
to where it all began

but the day has just begun
