filament

filament

last night

i thought we might

have finally broken our light

it fizzled and flickered

and spit and hissed

i thought for sure

it would shatter in the fight

i took it down

and cradled it in hand

i wondered if

we could keep it aglow

the filament was worn

the glass in haze

parts perhaps missing

or out of place

when the fight was done

we hovered together

and watched our light

flicker and hiss

and then grow silent

and steady once more

it warmed our tired

and achy bones

and after a while

i returned our light

to its rightful spot

to illuminate our paths

as we walk together

i try to remember

that sometimes our light

will flicker and fade

and it is okay

time will pass

our light will come back

bigger and brighter

than ever before
