A poem about one of my favorite things: Candlelight. What does it mean to you?

Candle light
Peaceful and sorrowful
Such strange symphony
Demonic and angelic
Holy and hellenistic harmony
Dark and devious
Light and lovely
For some
Low light brings
Romantic fantasy
For others mideval tales
Of trapped princesses
And brave knights delivering heroically
What is candle light?
An eerie, entertaining medium
In our society
To celebrate, to recreate
To deploy or destroy
Candles mean death, candles mean life
What IS candle light?
To me its a tool
To cry in the night
Where no one hears or sees my pain
My sorrow
So maybe I'll find strength
To face tomorrow
