Candlelight

CANDLELIGHT ©

The candle’s glow extends it’s light to reach the pencil’s end.
My words are left in shadows with no one to befriend.

As lines are laid on paper and text become a page,
I scribble thoughts in rapid haste before they disengage.

Secrets undisclosed before do not remain concealed.
Intrigue that once lay hidden is now for all revealed.

Answers chase the questions and facts correct the lies
Scrawled without conviction awaiting my revise.

The light grows dim and fades away as I write from memory.
My hand forms letters on the page, their shapes I cannot see.

The candle, like the book of life, its brightness but a mist,
The cover closed, the wick is burned, they both now just exist.
