Withering Flame

Embers of hope spark within my heart,
Daring to wish for a semblance of change
Yet again, my expectations are extinguished
As quickly as they came to fruition,
A withering flame trying desperately to maintain life
Alas, it eventually smolders into nothingness,
Leaving behind pale, empty ashes in its wake
Soon, all traces of the once brilliant fire have vanished into thin, stifling air,
A hollow void all that remains of its existence
