As Embers Die


as embers die

faces glow in the wash of light

whod have thought such change could come

so quick

like the sparks that fly beneath the stars

suddenly changing

to random bits of ash

hopeful of something

fearing that same thing

here, but not really

curiosity battling fear

as spirits fight for lives

and death waits a decision away
