Candlelight

Wick splutters, casts light,

Shimmers on limbs,

Dances.

Candle flaring, revealing

Eros’ dart fired,

Simmered glances.

 

Wax drips, time ticks

Unnoticed,

Under covers.

Melting forgives,

Flame lives

For lovers.

 

Kindled fire,

Taper spent,

Blaze extinguished.

Glow remains,

Flickering,

Love distinguished.
