One Candle In The Room


Wind tortured, no guard
to divert bad choices. Darkness
is promised. Flicker, gutter,
go out.
You were the one
brightness in the room.
No match or lighter
waiting in the corners
to rescue you because
darkness conspired
to steal your light heart
and gently consume
your fire.
Wind tortured, wind cursed,
the choice to be warm
and illuminate ends here.
Darkness was too strong
an adversary. Flicker, gutter,
go out.
