When time exploded,

Where were you?

I was in the cold depths of icy caverns  with no coat

And then a hellish fire pit with no drink of water.


When time exploded,

When were you?

I was just a child who felt even younger

Flying forward just for the chance of a certain moment.


When time exploded,

How were you?

I was an elephant dancing on a pin

Desperately adjusting my weight to stay balanced.


When time exploded,

Who were you?

I was a shattered china plate

A mistake in ink that was unerasable.


When time exploded,

You weren't with me anymore.

I know that correlation isn't causation

But I think your absence lit the fuse.
