In the past,

Which was

The future,

All the walls

Collapsed

From time.

We had

Nothing left

To cling to.

Except for

Our will

And our lives

And so we

held each

other tight

Perhaps in

weakness,

Fear, or fright.

But you chose

To stand

unaided

Your strength,

Your pride-

I prized.

I longed

To be like

You were.

Alone,

aloof and

glorified.

But when You fell

In all that

Splendor.

I blamed

Your hate, not

gravity

this time

We came

Down all

Together.

Just like a

feather

from the sky.

And I found

You crushed

And broken.

Then I

Understood

I realized.

I didn't

Think it

Mattered

What lone wolf

You thought

You'd be.

But no tear

Can fall

Unshattered

And No hero

Survives

. . .alone
