"Candles"

By Moonlark101

 

We are just like candles

we burn ourselves up

to give others light.

But when we burn ourselves up

we have nothing left.

There's just a hollow shell

a ghost.

Until someone else comes along

and gives their light to us

so they can see up smile

just for a while

until it all repeats 

and the darkness succeeds.
