Candle-light

What is it about the light of a candle…

that makes your eyes flicker in the night?

What is it about the light of a candle…

that rhythmically attunes rhythmic heartbeat?

What is it about the light of a candle…

that keeps this lonesome feeling at bay?

What is it about the light of a candle…

that warms your skin as desire heightens?

What is it about the light of a candle…

that proves I need you, ever, more?

What is it about the light of a candle…

that elicits rest, here, tonight…

in the silence of twilight?
