Burn Free

As time passes by, 

The glimmering flame of hope 

I once held deep inside my soul

Slowly dwindles away

Its once vibrant shine 

Extinguished into nothing

But irreverent ashes

Desperately pleading in my mind

For a lonely wish to finally 

Be brought to life, 

To strike that ever elusive ember

Into existence once again

Wrenching me from all-consuming melancholy, 

Let this hollow spark of mine burn free
