The Optimist


The Optimist


The circle turns
The game begins
The candle burns
No one wins…

Flame beckons hither
Shadows bending
Blackened hearts wither
Dreams ending

Moth to flame
Cinder wings
None to blame
Silence rings

The candle burns
The game begins
The circle turns
No one wins…

– Crispian Thurlborn, “The Optimist” (2015)
