Ode to A Spirit

The passion of your heart, burning desire

When escaped from dreams, through smoke may travel

To strengthen a fading, faltering fire

When fulfilment seems near, harsh winds ravel

Clear is the site, soft do the embers glow

Upon blank starless nights, away from warmth

Forgone souls wander, forever shallow

Memories they keep, future promise haunt

Cacophony, wishes cascading down

Drumbeat echoes, announce shattered vessels

Only empty souls, only empty sounds

There is nothing, an absence to lessen

Perpetual, bound endless beyond grasp

Strident marching, no future beyond past
