		beside me
				as I waved my arms above my unprotected
And I realized that as the foundation of that place
  in which I had dwelt for so many eternities
	began to crumble around me
    a weird, dim light poured forth
				through the gaping wounds 
			 	of the ceiling so far above
and slowly it descended over the entire floor
	so that the icy cold melted away 
    under a new warmth
	   and I struggled to force my eyes open
so I might see the entire world changing around me
			a sight more beautiful than any I'd ever seen

and how I hated it
I prayed that I would never forget
but the building fell into dust
	collecting awkwardly in the palms of my tired hands
	    turned upwards towards a new sun
	        shining down so horribly beautifully
		    to scorch the earth I had once loved
