“Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.” -Kurt Vonnegut

Do you know the feeling?
Intensifying pain that
trickles in every
heart beat
A roaring flame, crackling
Startling; at first,but;yet, still
Shivers, the cold warmth
a reverberating light
echoing; lost in
its embers
Ashes of remembrance
fingertips; scorched like old memories lost in amnesia
The lack of a child's laughter
the crevice of fury resonating in every shrill voice
as the flames consume
dangerous consequences brought upon
by dangerous actions
An intensity of the sun; melting
in every memory
Misguided oxygen, the candle wick
burned down to
