Out, Out

We burned below a frozen sky,
transfixed by futures we’d never live.
Don’t out, brief light; we’re not done yet.

Don’t burn brief, oh light, oh love.
Don’t fall fast, oh you, oh me.

The night burned black,
crowding me with nothing.
Your light flashed,
smoldering,
carrying me home.

Your eyes smoldered
like candles in the night,
and you lit me on fire.

We burned below a frozen sky,
our embers mixing with our ashes
and lighting the wind on fire.

It’s Thursday again, and I’m posting my process and submission for Three Line Thursday. The italicized part is what I submitted. Enjoy!
