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.
