The Flickering Light

I might smile, but it only lasts a while

The solitary times silence my mind, and then silence my soul

Except for that whimper, that flutter

The aching, distant echo of emotion

Buried, but close to the surface


I exist as a beam of light in your world

And in mine, I'm but a flickering light

How long until the gas runs out?

What then?
