Moth and Flame

 

Moths drawn to candle flames

Seeking rewards of warmth, light

Closer, closer, closer

Touch and Retreat

Pain,Confusion

 

So like lovers are they

Braving Risks

A quick kiss

Burning with love

Stings of rejection

  

We feel for the moths

Admire their loyalty

Keeping vows

Until death

 

But what of the Candle?

 

Doomed to loneliness

Consuming itself

Leaving behind only

 

Darkness
