'Fire snuffed Out'

Written by: Wilma Neels



I came across you as I stumbled through a darkened alley shadows of the makeshift fire shed light on your face I wasn't sure if you were smiling or just trying to unnerve me after all it was late and I was alone there I stood almost like I was glued to the spot reluctant to move just in case the shadow of you disappear so I held my pose waiting on you to make the first move you never did, the fire finally snuffed out as it started to rain.. You never said a word, just took off your jacket and covered me with it there I stood as you turned around and walked away
