Poem: Bathed in blood and light

Work Text:

I found you bathed in blood and light

The sunrise haloed ‘round your face

Your eyes alive showed fate and grace

Had brought you back alive


I lay my bow beside your head

And bound the wounds that were your own

Around the room, your ledger’d grown

Where others fell and bled


You studied me with endless gaze

My hands I kept where you could see

Morning passed so quietly

As often do our days


The rush of wind flew down upon

The roof above through chopper wings

Silently we packed our things

And stepped into the dawn
