What is in a flame?

It is the symbol of many things

Faith.Love.Hope.

Yearning, lust , sustenance

It has heat and warmth

But too close, and get burned

Shedding its glow, illumination

Yet stare at it too long

Blinded you become

I watch as it sways with a house's breeze

Molten yellow to tarnished bronze

Observing nuances of a flawless teardrop

Squint at it, and a scintillating star appears

Open your eyes wide, a forked tongue licks at the ceiling

It can be memory or dream

Flame

Purity and Pain

 

What is in a flame?

What are you searching for...?
