Embers Fire

(Written after One Against an Army)

By Trisha Von Doss

AKA Xenamour

An ember burning bright and deep

dances toward the sky,

Illuminating darkest hours

with ever reaching light.

Warming hearts it lives within

despite encroaching night,

Against harshest blowing winds

... against Tsunamis flight.

The embers essence... hope and faith

burn at its center red,

Memories and promises

enough to keep it fed.

Consuming incandescence swells

fire and flame are spread,

Laying desperation waste...

love left in its stead.


Storms may make it flicker,

Of this I cannot lie,

But this I know beyond all doubt...

The flame will never die.
