Candles

Soft heat—searching, finding
Sticking the walls of my mind together

Shadow touches—waxing, waning
Memories melt beneath your body

Ember kisses—cooling, burning
Daydreams drip into your tender-

Mouth, eyes—screaming, scorning
When you leave, your flame will fill the-

Dark space you made inside me
Soft heat searching—never finding
