This is a challenge from ixluvx2xwritex2, and I am excited to participate. I get to write a story or poem, with a quote she gave me. My quote is from one of my all-time favorite movies, Young Frankenstein. I’ve always been a huge fan of Mel Brooks films, and the quote is, “Put the candle back!”
Originally, I was going to do something comedic, but decided to try something romantic.

She watched him light the candles,
As they slowly glowed in the room
His breath caught the match
Her breath caught, knowing it would be soon
He brought a candle to bed
They watched it flicker together
The flames licking the air above
The scent lasting forever
Put the candle back, she whispered
With a gleam in her eyes,
He smiled, she smiled,
Knowing their love will never die
