Ashes

Could you control the fire?

Would you pretend you want to?

Ravaging from inside out,

Taking what it wills.


Could you stop the damage?

Would you keep me safe?

Surviving in the smoky chaos,

Asking you for more.


As we burn to a pile,

As we suffocate in clouds,


I am forever thankful for these ashes,


You’ve left them all about.
