Flicker

stream-801796_960_720

A flicker of hope
A flicker of flame
Down the dark road
No one to blame
Dance of light
Follows the loss
By the old creek bed
Past the velvety moss
The weeping begins
Yet no one hears
Anguish spills
In those senseless tears
One final glimmer
Turned to dust
Her breath now stifled
As her heart is crushed
