A Lost Soul - Poem by Bolami lawal

I held in my palms,
What has become of beauty
When flames devoured
What was once a glorious empire....
I held to my bosom,
What was left of might
When glamour vanished in the air....
Without a word,
I gathered what now remained
Of an old friend;
I thrust those ashes
A golden vase....
And now,
It made no sense;
What do i make of those ashes
If the soul is LOST?
