Bonfire once so strong
Burned without more fuel all too long
Now withering embers of a life once strong
Not long now, I scowl
Wondering where and when it went wrong
This now sour, song
I embrace the end as I scatter the embers
Fierce red now turning black
Knowing what I’ve done can never be taken back
