Burning Embers

Bonfires flare in ignition

setting alight to all of

yesterdays spectres, lest their

haunting visions smoulder on.


Singed demons crackle in the

hellish pyre emblazoned by

the suffocation of their

impish presence. Exorcised


by the flames of searing hope,

and the illuminating

glow enkindling tomorrow.

Bygone fears go up in smoke.


Ghosts dance in the flickering

flames, perishing slowly in

the burning embers. Their charred

spirits residues of dust.
