fading fast

I am the flame.

Placid protagonist
Archic antagonist
Dual disposition

Tribal tango
Solo showdown

The billionth flicker
Points in longer nights
Til death by distant cousin

Why plot course?
I will burn forever
Reason in due time, not now

A spark unto creation or
A spark unto destruction
Determine future present past

Glowing bright this moment
How could I know
I’m just an ember fading fast

Embers fading fast
Lost chances to be light
Now I see

Lone flares fray
Futile flashes in the pan
When we could be a blaze

Fires fight forever
But in the end
That’s all just ashes so

I will be the warmth.
