Q for Quench
to quench is to extinguish (a fire)

the 11 of 12 given words:
light tiny shy torn fire shock 
lift mourn stories dream truth 

it happened sudden and tragic
it was light enough initially
tiny barely moving appeared static
shy of threatening bodily injury

torn between safety and risk
the firefighters tried to quench the fire
shockingly it fell short of the sky-lift
if not for the offending electric wires

a bright future unashamedly shattered
mournfully dogged by a minor difficulty
with stories of ill luck and dreams left tattered
often by truths of questionable integrity

A to Z Challenge - Q
