A Single Flame

Sometimes I am a

Single flame

Burning in a room;

I send out a warm dim

Light that Causes

The shadows to dance and play

With the night.

 

The first time I

Enter a room,

My light is softer~

Quieter

Than subsequent visits~

After I have warmed the room

And the room has warmed

To me.

 

Will you stand there,

Allowing me to steal

Oxygen from your world~

Allowing me to dance

And play and remain?

 

Is there room for me

To share a bit of warmth

With you and for you

To gather near my light?

 

I cannot guide your way,

But I can soothe your soul,

Oh, if only for this moment.

About ~Drew

I am a survivor of childhood torture. Each day, I put one foot in front of the other, moving forward. To do any less would spell my own destruction. My music/poetry/prose deal with the devastating effect of this kind of abuse on a human being: me. My experiences/thoughts/ideas/misconceptions are exposed here for all to see. Here. I am lain bare, naked, hidden only be the cloak of anonymity.
