like fires dancing flames,
burning a hole in the black.
Leaves behind painful scars,
forever seared in my brain.

frozen in time eternal,
etched in stone and not forgotten.
A remembrance of what is past,
burns hot in the infernal.

from the darkness will come,
slapping our hearts with regret.
Forever lost of what once was,
voices push until you’re numb.

out of nowhere appear,
to sidetrack our simple lives.
Things once laid to rest,
still rattle things we hold dear.
