Burn

Standard



The freedom

Of a candlestick 

Is none 

But to burn

And burn it does

Waxing 

Melting

Wasting

It’s life away

Only one passion

The flame

Giving light

Sparking interest 

Glowing 

In wee hours

Cutting darkness

A small warmth

On a cold 

Lonely night 

A singular beauty 

Upon a pedestal

No choices

But to burn
