Firefly

Chasing those fireflies

Lights that flicker in the dark

Guiding you home

To the abyss


Faint lights fade

Deepening the darkness

Just a moment of majesty

Before the shadows creep again


To catch that illumination

For a moment

Or many moments in a jar

Cementing its fleetingness


Candles set to light

To be eventually extinguished

In the unrelenting storm

They thrive on


Fly freely

Into the night sky

Feel no tethers to the terra

That we find as our final bed
