    It's so bittersweet
    when you feel the flickers
    of old flames, which you thought,
    were doused but they
    still burn bright
    in the days of your past.

    Now you can't go back
    to that old familiar warmth
    because you chose to move on
    towards brighter lights
    and fiercer fires,
    that may or may not lie
    in your future days.

    But you can smile,
    for you have the flickers,
    to endure this cold.
