when everything else fails

The Candle

i become one of the fallen
now let down and forgotten
to wither in the wind and mourn
like a candle about to burn

a candle once straight and firm
on top a crown of fire burned
now lay ashen wax fallen
in a mound liquid streaming

now i become that fallen candle
sorrow i have wrapped in a bundle
a mound of wax in deepest regret
tears streaming yet no one to cuddle

  1. That is so sad, and I can feel the chill. Just remember a candle can also be a beacon a life saver , bent or not…. just a thought. P.T. Y. P. XX

  2. A sad voice.. but still I like to think that as a candle you shed light and brought some joy to some people… well that is me, the eternal optimist ~

  3. So deep. I can relate to the dark beauty of the longing. The inner feelings that are so hard to convey in words, but well done here. Very well done.
