After the Funeral #7

After a funeral

After all the tears are spent

Solemn gray shadows close coffin lids

The room is warm sitting next to the fire

Attempting to calm itself.

The wall reveals its true intentions

Slightly buzzing gossip

A distant lamp just over the door

Fighting for its life

Flickering eternal escapes

Plans fizzle as draft tickles the floor

Everyone rests

As death waltz’s through the room
