Extinguished Ember


The embers from the fire
rise high into the sky
Like a fleeting light
from the nightly show of the fireflies
They fade away
Slip away, out of sight
And as the night goes on
I feel like that ember
I feel like that firefly
Drifting beyond your vision
Extinguishing my light with the coldness of your love
Or rather the lack there of....

Now a sharp pain lodges deep in my heart
The tears well up in the cave of my chest
I can't rest
The agony that's unleashed because you withhold your affection from me
touch from me
kiss and embrace
I feel like that ember
that escapes from the fireplace
Who's spark
Ascends, disappearing without a trace
And now my warmth, with coldness
has been replaced

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
