Last flicker!

It eats me up from the inside

Inch by inch, crawling

I have known it’s face long enough

Having seen it in mirror, sprawling.

What can one possibly do?

When one is one’s own foe?

What mask does one undo

With no face underneath to show.

What trickles down the brim of my cup

Is now my soul, spilled over

And what you read, here and now

Is the last flicker before night’s over.
