we become



Who do we become
When they take us away
Batter our dreams
Disrupt our day
A sullen candle
Willows in wind
The smoke it carries
The night air has sinned
Who do we become
When they take you away,
No room for a chalice
Or a place you can pray
No chord for a vocal
Or guitar for a string
No ammunition
For muddied things
Who do you
Become
When they take you 
Away
Disappear into darkness
And quickly you fade
Despite your longing
For things to change
Life is subtly
Rearranged
