Ashes

of bone

and flesh

are all

that can be left

of a life

lived without passion


flashes

of lucidity

and death

bereft

of old wine

and

love


crashes

of violent waves

in wanton theft

against

a lonely shore.

Like the first line of each stanza rhyming. Everything else isn't bad either.
