Candlelight

Candlelight

A Poem by A.Lee

Through the flaming light she dances
Round and round the darkened room
She flickers back and forth, so frantic
Fills the air with sweet perfume

She makes the shadows run in fear
And soothes the pain on every face
And though she fills the room with warmth
She's never felt a warm embrace

She'll never stop til she burns out
She gives her life to bring you light
Alone behind her glass enclosure
Fading through the endless night

Amazing write! There was something really ethereal and dreamlike about this piece that really resonated with me, and I liked the fact that despite the simplicity of your choice of words, you were able to evoke so much emotion and intensity within your piece. A beautiful and inspired examination of a captivating character. Nice work,

I thought this was a very nice piece. I like the flow and the imagery in the poem. I can imagine seeing the girl dance around and around. The second stanza stood out to me the most. I think you did a good job on this. It was amazing. Thanks for sharing. :)

The dance of life's flame. A tenuous flicker that we take for granted more often than not. But we'd be blind without it. Nurture it so it doesn't blow out in the storm

This is beautiful although all through it I was seeing a moths flitting to the flame.

This poem is the epitome of love and dedication. For some reason it
reminds me of the candle flame that burns until a love safely returns
home.

What a neat way to personify a simple candle. Everything about them is so soothing. And a feminine voice is just right for a candle too:)
