Candles

A world full of bright shining love
a world of scented candles by a bath
a room of flickering shadows
bubbles tickle, glasses swirled with ice
Romance blooms with spring
tall candles flicker
An entwined dance of lust
A rose petal trail leads on
memories of what has been, could have been
A stunted candle thick with wax droplets
burns by a window of dreams
reality and fantasy blur the lines
a dark endless winter
a sea of cold grey
tonight
my candle burns lonely

    Indeed, candles ignite a lot of memories. I'm just too drawn right now to the last lines. Thank you for this one. Well written.
