The Flame

by Aaron Wolfe

Two great stars once found their way,

Meeting under circumstance of gray;

Collision granted sparks to fly,

Erupting flames to soar on high.

 

Warmth and want consumed them both,

The flames to flare above sworn oaths;

Within the blaze the stars would dance,

Giving all to one brave chance.

 

Beyond all hope the stars did yearn,

Forgotten warmth upon them burned;

Lost in flames the stars did cry,

The time arrived to say goodbye.

 

The flame at last had run its course,

Yet in the stars lived no remorse;

For all that burned as stars came wake,

To ash they scattered, beyond escape.
