Candle

Love is like a flame

When it’s out you can’t see yourself
I burnt as I lit
You sprayed me with blood
I crackled but I re-lit to zen
You could reburn a blown flame
But how will you rebuild the wax?
That lowered itself to guide you
They say never say never but we do
No goodbyes either but sure too
Rooted.
One direction I could run in – Down
Light is the crown of a candle
When it wears not the crown nothing is bright.
As it shines, it rides the wick
Lit with pride it rules the darkness around
All aware of the present jewel
With head held high it thinks everything is beneath it
As it flickers its come hither hair shake
It is the was that holds the flame up
Prideful flame realizes not that every moment it descends to the ground
When one elevates South they don’t rise
As you the flame and I the wax
And the wick in between us – our love
No strings attached?
No light,
No show,
No crown.
As long as the body lives
The crown can come on anytime
The life span of a candle is decided by the volume of its wax
The candle shines not what it stands on
It shows not what it burns from
Hiding its feel all the while
Everyone prays upon a rising Sun
Someone is praying at all times
When reflected upon, darkness multiplies
And so does light…
Where one is endless
The other individuals unite
Nothing changes
Nothing happens
When darkness is multiplied it is divided
But light spreads when divided.
Wise before wisdom
Look for the light
Wise beyond wisdom
Light outside of me
Light within me
Big ball of fiery Sun and a firefly
Both soaked in light
Where one burns endlessly and the other in intervals
Darkness is not a coward
It is where the flame rests.
