Lost Fire

via Daily Prompt: Tame

He sits inconspicuously in his chosen corner,

away from judging eyes,

silent in his thoughts,

alone in his heart.

Months ago he was full of fire,

courageous with his ideas,

speaking out loud for all to hear,

and now, he is tame,

a shell of his former self,

watered down until the embers

will no longer ignite.

He has lost,

un-moving in the confusion,

pretending to be engaged,

but blank in his stare.

And maybe, we have all lost.
