Reach The Flame (4/3/18)

There, a spark!
See it, stalk it,
snatch it, hold it
however long you may –
covet with snail-sure glances that
pierce the other, thieves and
desperate men, with dark
unknown hearts,
far too deep for light to seep,
far too deep.
So lie, betray,
rise and strike down,
again and again,
for that guttering flame
(until your hands,
your gaze,
your breath,
smother the spark).
