A dimming glow

A dying flame

Quietly going

Into darkness

Tis' like life

We are here

For a moment

Of brief beauty

And then

We are gone

A flame extinguished

By death's pulsing sea

As fire and water

Cannot mesh

Neither can life

And death

Find companionship

In each other's


Fire and ice

Life and ending

Love and hate

Light and darkness

Fire and water
