Ashes

Feeling the burn I’ve almost reached the wall
Ashes culminating, cushioning my fall
Physical burning now attacks my feelings
So much for now, they have me on my knees praying

The ashes slip beneath my blistered knees
Efforts to reach the wall, can’t be done with ease
Suddenly the film’s slapping the take up reel
Mocking my hopelessness that I can’t conceal
