One Flame

Among them I am but One Flame

breathing in the quiet

as another day is bound

preparing to chase dreams.

I notice how those around me

climb to the top to find

darkness and sit there

content it exists for now.

I notice how tenderness sparkles

like cheap Wal-Mart earrings

and smiles help those in need

return from their own grave.

Among them I burn like an old flame

reminding myself of them

ignited

.flame

 

burn baby burn
