A Bitter Coating
There’s a gentle calling that feels so natural,
But in the dimming embers lays a void of uncertainty.
A glimpse of a smile can send me into panic,
Yet a single moment can raise a thoughtless storm.
I could feel the smoke crawl across my skin,
Only to get burned as the light showed false hope.
The light was strong, promising, you could say,
But all things sweet have a bitter coating.
