Love is a candle


Love is a candle
Burning while tended
Glittering column of flame

Love is a candle
Extinguished in an instant
When lovers turn away

I once held a candle
Intensely burning
Fuelled by deepest desire

The candle, once tended
Burned brightly intense
Love’s light in a point of fire

Now the candle has smouldered
The room is in darkness
And the shadows come out to play

No fuel for said fire
No love spark, no light
When two lovers have turned away.
