Ember

Golden light flickers
embracing stone
you, shadowed and light
across from me
Eyes shine a dream
smile costs me stars
I could sit here
all day…

and then
you
fade

Only an ember
floating from the depth
of a passion I’ve tried
to forget
you, only an ember
drifting on the winds
of dreams I’ve learned
carry ghosts

But I want to stay
in this warmer place?
can I drift here
and linger?

Golden light grows dimmer
earth and rock simmer
you, shadowed and light
fade
