Diminishing downwards – poetnilavronill

A moment of brightness
Flashed through her
Morbid smile, like the
Dwindling candle lights

She was staring ahead
Standing naked in front
Of her trusted mirror
Like a retreating soldier 

It was her birthday, and
As usual, since she left
Everything behind…
Celebrating the night all alone

Dreams and desires
Reflections and realities
Were feeling perhaps 
Betrayed, like the infantries

Without any backups
Without any means
To march ahead, facing
The destiny, inevitable.
