Despair and thoughts of death.

Flames in the Night

by joshuaharestad

Even the good music is sad.

Dark thoughts.

Death lurks.

It is everywhere.

We are but flames,

waiting for a gust of wind.

Then what?

If I knew,

I wouldn’t be here.

But my angst creates art.

I’m proud of that.

Yet I think of all the others.

Who’s voices aren’t heard.

Who don’t have support.

Who feel so alone.

I feel alone,

even when I’m not.

I have a loving family.

A beautiful wife.

Still.

Creeping loneliness.

I ache for God.

For purpose.

If you’re out there.

Alone.

Suffering.

I love you.

Perhaps together,

we can build a mighty fire,

and when that gust comes,

we’ll know that the light,

is still going to be there.

Even without us.

Such is our fate.

We flames in the night.
