Ashes

The lightning strikes down upon her heart
But no fire within will it start
The embers have all turned to ash
By this world that has been so brash
And as a cold wind blows through her soul
It takes the pieces that once were whole
Scattering them all far and wide
Leaving emptiness deep inside


Fading Smoke

Smoke rises up as the flames burn low
Giving the last of their precious glow
The warmth is gone as the embers turn cold
Nothing left to give, nothing left to hold
The smoke drifts away without a care
Quietly vanishing in the air
Until nothing’s left, no sign of the flames
And once more the night this darkness reclaims
