Candle

 


                                                        as
                                                     she sits
                                                  on the edge 
                                                   of her bed
                                                   the candle  
                                                       burns
                                                       

                                                       her
                                                thoughts drift
                                                with the aroma
                                                and light smoke
                                                one touch from 
                                                masculine hands
                                                could light desire
                                               and she would melt
                                                into a slow trickle
                                               like a candle's edge
                                               beneath the heat of
                                              red glow to puddles
                                                of warmth below

                        her eyes tear in a smokeless room as she sits
                         on her bed alone...the candle burns itself out

    Sandra, wow... the imagery's amazing. I like the way you described the candle burning slowly--- outstanding imagery... one of the best poems I've read today.. Besides Jack's haiku... LOL... Sandra, the fading glow, describes a lonely feeling.... lost love... xox...LINDA
