I don't really know what to say about this poem. I wrote it a few months ago and I've had a few people tell me they like it so I hope you do too!

Sitting in this circle we stare into the flames. They reflect our souls and show our inner-most desires.

The smoke dances around us in wafts of hazy grey. They flit our pretty day dreams and show our inner-most desires.

As it disappears, never to be seen again... They play out our pasts and show our inner-most desires.

Now, as the fire dies, we only have memory of it. We’ve seen our mistakes and know...

the desires we fell and want, are merely desires. Never to come true. Never to be known. Only in time will the smoke reveal them.
