a
dying
flame
   trapped  
       within
         a
        wall of        glass
       as  i           stare
     into the        fading   fire
      it begins        to speak  to   my
   heart...............it  tells  of  a
    lifetime   of  hopes  and  dreams
never to be fulfilled...........yet
  it   speaks  of  an  undying   spirit-
a spirit  that will never stop believing
as i listen...i become lost...lost within the
  fire and the story it tells......... the voice

  slowly........fades
........as the flame  gives  in
to death.........but its  story  of  undying
faith will forever burn
within my soul...

Vicky----I love this in all it's glow.  As if the beauty of your words were not enough, you give us the beauty of your poets/artists flame.  I love these little graphic poems and you should have entered this one in my challenge....well I will accept it as that anyway....way cool.  I have done alot of these from simple hearts to guitars but yours really and truely shines.  I love the flicker you addes in the crest of it.

And as for the verse.....faith and true desire will get you the happiness you seek.

sorry to have rambled.

I stumbled into your cupboard this evening, and found a lamp burning - what a great piece this was Vicky, we need to do another challenge like this.
