If time were a thief…


One Flame

I have seen the bottom
Of my soul,
The darkness etched within,
I have explored it, indulged it, tempted it and called it out:
And own it.
By acknowledging it
I dragged it
The light
And what I realised is
That even one flicker
Ember flame
Is enough to reignite a
Weary wanderer soul.
