It exploded into the sky and all I could think about was breathing.
Stomach in my throat, I looked at the others frightened and holding hands.

We were falling and I was stubborn, ready to go down alone.
I closed my eyes making peace with all that was this complicated life.

It was taking longer than I expected and when I peaked my eyes open I saw you, alone in the corner, terror in your eyes.
I scaled the walls and made my way over to comfort you only to find I was comforting myself.

And when I awoke I realized my dreams are not so different than this detached condition I call home.
And when I awoke I realized it was time to relocate.
