that crash and burn into ashes/

only embers remain/
tamed/
a non-threatening frame/
housing depicted images changed/

conglomerate/
devoid of operant/
desires/
expired/

H er presence fills the room/
like sweetly aromatic incense/
intense/
adding aesthetic ambience to the atmosphere/
causing others to stare/
without eyes/
aware/
of her reverberating energy/
brilliantly/
shining light/

of sameness/
imposed surrepitious/
that sullies individuality/
systematically/
systematical ly...
