FOR HIS FLAME

FOR HIS FLAME

A Poem by DIVYA
"

The burning abyss of love

"



He’s a moth to her flame

A fleck of dust upon gold

Glistening, he basks 

In the fuming depths of her folds

 

Diving dizzily into her realm

He fears no pain as she seethes

Her fire singes his wings

Her searing wind, he breathes

 

Her moth, he sways with her

Through every passing storm

Imploring each dark, fearful gust

To not snuff out her wavering form

 

And so truly is he enticed

He shuns the lustrous morning rays

Welcoming a severe night

Lit solely by his beloved’s blaze

 

He’s a moth to her flame 

The stars for him do weep

A speck that burns in love 

His flame on earth to keep

Love the artwork & how your words feel enhanced by seeing this image. Love how you depict a light-vs-dark, good-vs-evil, gentle-vs-fiery sense of confrontation that's resolved thru tolerance & understanding. There are many fiery people in this world & then there are those who must be on the sidelines, placating and/or loving them. Your poem is also an allegory for getting along in our troubled times where everything the other person says/does feels fiery (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Thank you very much BlackPrince!
Thus is a striking image, the disturbing truth that we can risk all in love and be destroyed by its very flames... You construct your poem with awesome skill, taking us through the scene with deft and fluent writing. A lovely poem.

A moth to the light. If we are the light. A blessing.

Amazingly good! We are all moths drawn to a flame of some kind or another.

Indeed, we all need that flame in some way or the other, to find purpose in our lives. Thank you so .. read more
Isn't it funny that as some men are drawn to a woman's beautiful flame of attraction, there are some women who gravitate to the bad boy who seemingly holds the water that would extinguish her power?

The moth to the flame may be an old concept, yet you also take notice of the sun and the stars. By human nature, a man will often feel the gravitational pull of one light. And that light is often his reason for being. Whether it be through dedication or naivety.

Well done, Divya. The video is splendid.

There aint nothing quite like that burning abyss my friend.... this has both a contemporary and more historical feel and flavour to it ... a perfect mix and certainly enjoyed... Neville
