flame.

Late night poetry.

————————–

picture a single candle

burning, burning, burning

picture a dark room

the flame illuminating its walls

 

picture a single candle

the initial spark exciting the surrounding air particles

senses awakened

everything’s new & far from blue

the wick shrinking

the wax melting

burning, burning, burning

 

picture a single candle

running out of time

will its scent last

or will it be a thing of the past

 

picture a single candle

burning, burning, burning

its fate unknown

 

picture a single candle

its flame extinguished

the truth exposed
