Embers

You’re like a flame
Seeing you warmed my heart
But lately you’ve been swaying
To and fro in the wind of my life
You went out a few times
Through the embers you left
Still burn in my mind
Like little wisps
Until you rekindle
Once again, in the forefront of my thoughts
Sometimes I’m unsure
If you even want to be here
Your enticing smell has left you
And you’ve become ordinary
Perhaps I’m ready to look
For something new
Something consistent and
The impossible—merely a dream
Because the embers you left
Cannot be extinguished
