Burning To Nothing

Poem By RIC BASTASA

there is a light within us
we do not keep it inside for soon

it shall burn us alive and so
we keep ourselves open to

the blue skies and to the
full moon at night so they

all can see us flicker like
a star glowing in the darkness

of our longings we keep this
light burning and burning

night and day till we are
all consumed till we are all

gone like a candle burning
itself to nothing
