Up in flames

The bonfire petered out.

we raked the ashes,

it was time to walk away,

everything was gone.

Obliterating history,

in just a single act.

we rescued things of value

and ourselves.

The people we once were

died within those flames.

The future had no map,

no plan, no safety net.
