Moths to flame

A union
once brilliant with potential
now dull with wear.
We huddle in its fading light.
We’ll follow the glow
even on to our demise,
moths to flame,
hypnotized by the promise
of joy or doom.
We make no effort to divert
a path so tempting
and journey swiftly onward
to our revival
or our end.
