When the Flash Came

When the flash came
I had just cleared the fourth floor
Confident everyone had made it to the shelter
The steel door closed behind them

When the flash came
Night became a day like no other
Just several seconds long
With the intensity of a hundred suns

When the flash came
I was happy not to be in a doorway
As I watched the paint sizzle
In the nuclear sunlight
