We built a fire
The paper of our lives
We smashed down doors
Tore up books
Fences flattened
No bed unbroken
We took it all
Stacked it to heaven
And with a wink
It blazed
And it burned
And it lit the sky
And the heat warmed the world
And from the blaze
A new alloy 
Precious, strong and beautiful
We lay in ashes 
Shrouded in smoke
I could not find you
I knelt
I breathed
An ember sparked
