Hypnotic Flame

by Lili @LiLiacSin
(Houston, Texas)

the candlelight winks at me tonight

wanting to dance that beat one more time

bundling thoughts stained with your name, pictures & words

& dipping their edges onto the flame

to watch burn with a graceful disgrace

the fire flickers & sparks and i know which memory it's met

a few more minutes and the illumination will soon be dark

its colors are hypnotic as i am staring into the alluring beauty

feeling the anger & pain turn into boiling strength

loving the light

adoring the fire

i touch to let the rhythm bite me

to breath

& burn me to finally see

that's all it takes to make you dissolve into a grey wind

to set myself free
