Incendiary

my candle heart placed by window ajar

waiting for your breeze bestowed

shall I flicker and fail

at the impending gale

or leap with urgent flame

excited by air

gasping here,  gasping there

 

a pool of molten collects

and waxen tears spill

in time I will diminish

deform

twisted by warm

where once I stood tall

wick burns low

or

not

at

all
