Just like a candle waiting to be lit

without you I could not function, unfit.

Just a centerpiece, the center of me

yearning for the chance to show what you’d see

if only you would let your light transmit.


You are a flame - the darkness you omit,

so why in darkness do you best acquit?

Without your existence I cannot be:

Just like a candle.


Melting as you bore and dissolve my grit

your presence whittles away my spirit.

I wither, yet never can I be free.

In my quiet flickering I must cease

just like a candle.
