The gale and the pounding rain cease

Your heavy eyes have dried and your gaze returns to mine

The debris can rest for now

If you could just listen to the quiet

I'm begging you

(I hope you heard it while you could)

It returns with renewed strength

Tearing down our shelter

Our fragile makeshift home

My feeble grip

Won’t stop or slow your body

From ripping from mine

Now I'm left to plead with your vexing anguished apparition

It doesn't know me, my face is a black mask

My words like children spurred to war

A naive passion propelling the surge

Between the beachhead and my throat

Is where they died

Though crises pass, like the storms,

And we can't take one more blow

As sure as war, it returns

Loyal to, vigil for,

Conduits lost

No matter how many times,

Each and every time you're lost, I'll offer up my spine

If it somehow helps you back to our home and tranquil thoughts

On the floor will be collapsed: me relieved

In this zero sum game, I can't know that my bet will play

But I know that I can lose

As my endurance fades, as I'm reduced to four legs

I'm left with one thing

I'm loyal to, vigil for

Conduits lost

We rode copper wire through continents
