By Candlelight

Sitting in a glass with no sounds…
The candlelight pours where my words are found…

No echo’s heard as the walls grab my voice…
Absorbed from the pages with little choice…

The flickering flame plays with my pen…
Tickling the words from now and then…

Lasting impressions fall from my poetic sky…
Onto my hands like tears from my eye…

Lines wave like treetops in a breeze…
Swaying emotions from the soul of me…

The candlelight dims, as the world goes to sleep 
While into your dreams my words will weep…

    This almost sounds like a whisper Michael; makes the reader feel like yielding to the call. Hope your new year is ramping up with more of your great verse! Luv, Lizzie

    You are making my eyelids close softly, not sure if it is because it is getting late, and it has been a long day, or because the glow from your poetic candle is softly mesmerizing me, either way, I will call it a night Michael, oh, nice, very nice poem, xxx Rose, xxx
