A poem…

The spark


The spark remains dimly lit

It resides deep within my hairy casket

It hides inside my bitter glistening veins

Covers itself with laments

Or an occasional fantasy

Travels deceivingly

Never admitting its real whereabouts

Somehow it manages to appear

A mirage

A ghostly wink

An ember

In this dying fire that I’ve become.
