Slow Dancing in a Burning Room

via Daily Prompt: Flames

Note: It would be best to play the music while reading. ๐Ÿ™‚

I think you feel it.

Don’t you see the flames?
Oneย spark caused it all.
No words are needed now,
This is the beginning of our fall.

Well,ย there’s just us
And no one else in the room,
Not a single soul can hear
The sound of our impending doom.

Time tells the music to start,
Only time can tell when it stops.

Letย your arms pull me closer.
One hand on my back,
Swaying to the rhythm,
Empty hearts, troubled minds.

You move more and more slowly
One hand left holding mine,
Untilย the song finally ends.

  1. This brings out mixed emotions of those rather short-lived yet memorable experiences we had with our dance with life.

    Everything we have must pass thru flames in order to bring out its true value.

    Yet again, another beautiful piece you have here Liz! Keep it coming!

  2. This brings out mixed emotions of all the rather short-lived experiences I had with my “dance” with life.

    Everything we have (love, friends, relationships, etc.), everything that touch and affect our innermost beings, must pass thru the flames of fire to prove their worth.

    Yet again another great piece of work Liz. It matches well with the music.
    Keep it coming!
