Your Words Flicker The Flame

Your words flicker the flame
is it really me to blame?
You came as I was dancing
and before I knew I was glancing
around every corner looking for you.
I left so I could find myself come back anew,
then there you were flickering that dying flame
is it really me to blame?
You say Lady in Red has your heart
yet never did you in dance let me impart
this passion that could take over your soul,
I know it could for within me it's out of control.
I walked away hoping to find a way to douse the flame
I come back now wondering was it really me to blame?

Words are powerful instruments and can be devistating if misused.  This is sad, my heart aches with yours.

Though you burned in that dark night
Your flame was shadowed
By another's intense light.
Are you to blame
For the shadow I could not see?
For the blindness of heart within me?
No my Lady White
That is not right
Accept not that sword of guilt
The blade or the hilt
For by my hand it was cast
You are not to blame
For the Flicker
or
The Flame

A man of honor and of grace
as a storm of passion
tried to overwhelm his pace.
A storm like a mini earthquake
full of little tremors
but no magnitude to fake.
A man of honor and grace
tells it like it is
I was just in the wrong place.
A shadow on a darkened night
flame flickering
but never quite enough light.

Michael, & Corazon Thanks for reading, this poem was in Stute fun, I know it seemed strong in emotion, but the intended party saw the next play he needed to make and that was the objective. I'm sorry if you were mislead I meant no harm.
