Cold flame

Cold flame

A Poem by Najam Us Saher
"

Personification of a candle

"
COLD FLAME
Surrounded by emptiness and silence,
I bring you light when you are in darkness.
Afraid what lies in pitch black room?
I erase your fears.
You carry me along,
I help you seek out things.
You use me and forget,
While I burn for you.
I am no great soul,
I am a candle who lives for you.
My flame keeps me warm,
Because I am surrounded by cold people like you. 
I burn to brighten your day,
I am so selfless.
You blow me when someone else brightens your life,
My flame quivers,
And then I feel cold
I am still ready to burn for you again,
Because I am remembered as the one who lights the darkness.

Thank you, for requesting that I read this, It's a wonderful personification of a candle! I try to be self less in life, but when I do things without thinking about it for others, people in a way blow out my candle. Funny thing is when I was younger, I wasn't scared of what lurked around the corner in the dark, but was scared of the darkness itself.

Beautifully flowing poem. That is so true of Love. That is not returned properly. To love someone who does not feel the exact same way as you do. And how you can not rip yourself away from them. But keep coming back for me.

It's been a while I've been reading your poems. Every each of your poem is written very beautifully and holds a great meaning. I've always liked your poems. And a confession, some of your poems just hit me so hard like I've felt this before or I've been here or been through this, this is exactly what I feel. And I feel totally attached to your poems. And that's what makes your poem more awesome to me.

Keep it up!
To a talented poet,
From a well-wisher :)

Your welcome ^^
The title itself talks about two contrast things, cold and flame. The way you have symbolized a candle's lifeline with human feelings is really creative.
