human beings

August 11, 2017

human beings make up a world

of fragile and innocent souls

of glass hearts in crystal cages

and breaths in paper thin lungs


with thrumming bursts of emotion

spiking their way through their veins

a single spark can reduce them

to nothing but shadows and ash


and yet they continue being

burning bright before darkness descends

tiny beautiful heartbeats

flickering until the end
