Drama Abstract


Mortal Smoke

Mortal Smoke

1 min 199 1 min 199

Caught in the fiery ambers of life

It takes enough out of me just to survive.

Walking on the edge of Death’s knife

It hardly feels that I am alive.


Where there is smoke

There is, not always fire.

Is there a life

If there is no desire.

And this is what makes us wrong

Trials don’t always make us strong.


My Corpse lives, barely alive

Intimate with pain, the treacherous slive.

Life cries with me

And death calls me a liar.

Like the stubborn last breathe of a mortal

Smoke rises from the ashes of my fire.
