Silhouette

A Poem by Matt
"

i always light a candle before i sleep and when i put it out i seem to fall asleep immediately

"
slowly burning candle.
Flicker in and out,
the light keeping me alive.

Missing the one i think of,
The falling star i dream of.
Flicker in and out.

Eyes wide open.
Relentlessly Haunting my sleep,
My star, she flickers in and out.

Keep my face smothered into my pillow,
Shadows guarding me,
My falling silhouettes.
those dreams flicker in and out.

My Eyes are heavy,
silhouetting candle flickers in and out,
as she falls cold into my arms.

Believing this isn't,
just another dream...
The candle flickers in and out.
