Shine, Ebb, Glow

Tis the brightest star
that burns the hottest
lives the shortest
dies most brilliant
in color, and light
before the darkness

We are not so different
we who breathe and gasp
ourselves into being
into reinvention of selves

The only way we differ
is that we continue on, deadl
iving on after we've shined
after passion itself
has burned us away
leaving but embers.

And so we continue on
our light a remnant of life
the coal left by flames
to glow until we die
