A candle burns late
in a saucer picturing
a delicate lady in blue.
Her smile has gone to wax,
darkness settles around her
stretching this room to forever.
When I reach out my arm
my hand is gone.
Beyond my hand is the world
of the desk and chair and you
lost in blackness I cannot penetrate,
I hear one unforgettable sigh.

I can't believe I found this hiding underneath a pile of other masterpieces down here. It's a bit damp so I'm gonna hang it up in the sunshine of Passions. Nice job really liked the read.

Thankyou all for your comments, and Lost Dreamer thanks for hanging it out again. I got a few more back there that need airing.
