DRAMATIC FIRES

forest-fire-991479_960_720

The picture hangs crooked

Among splinters and knots

The corners a bit scorched

A moment frozen in a frame

Waiting for the smoke to clear

And the shouts to fall silent

Before trying to make peace

Before searching for the time

Where everything went wrong

Where they try too hard to erase

The mistakes that were made

But when they find the picture

They realize the damage done

Because nothing can bring back

The smiles they had undone
