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.

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.
