So, after months of not writing any new poetry, this one is very recent, and I still feel a bit insecure about it, but here goes nothing. I'm actually proud of the first stanza, I feel like it translates what I was feeling and imagining as I wrote quite well.

Light the candles

Watch them melt

Count the petals as you pick them

One by one

Prick the sensitive spots on your neck

With the thorns from the stem

Let no rose die in vain.

 

The wind enters through open doors

And open windows and open floors

To join me in my tryst.

The wine presses lingering kisses to my lips.

The flames flicker to warm my skin.

And yet, I feel so alone.

 

It's time to close the doors

And the windows and the floors.

It's time to close the doors

And the windows and the floors.

It's time, to close.

It's time.
