The Candle burns.....
and we see
in the flicker
chance.

The Candle flares
and within the melting wax,
our expectation runs
in streaks of molten red
in passions not yet dead.

And the Candle burns....
glow between our smiles
a warmth you gave me
a heat we found
in a darkened hall.

The Candle burns...
I see the flare in your eyes
the care in your touch
is too much
was always too much
and made me cry.

The Candle burns....
we are the shadows
it throws
and only the candle knows
when our flame will die.

Fool~
What lovely thoughts you've expressed.

'The Candle burns....

and only the candle knows
when our flame will die'

I enjoyed this very much.

This poem is exquisite...

And the Candle burns....
glow between our smiles
a warmth you gave me
a heat we found
in a darkened hall.

Excellent imagery, fool.

Love it!
