The Fireplace (By Black Angel)

 

THE FIREPLACE

A reflection of scolding hot truths

Fallen ungracefully from burning almond wood.

I dwell upon a hundred and one mistakes.

Sordid ashes

A once pure soul

Now damned to be one

With the frigid brick floor.

2012 by Charles Banks, Jr.

Writing as BLACK ANGEL

Brain Weeds and Depressed Souls
