Gone totally gone

Photo by Dan Fraser

How can you compare

the absence to the presence 

of that mysterious 

but unreliable light

that flickers on occasion

in certain dark and restless nights

with or without choosing

with or without pain

or the promise of joy

if only your faltering hand

could reach the irresistible flame

that came and then was gone

totally gone
