Burning Candle~

Flickering candle holds hope for “me”~
Darkness can’t shroud incandescent brilliance~ 

A light in me, duplicity,
I am that I might see
the self same in thee~ 

Never ending journeys back to the veil~
Never quite strong enough to brave the storm,
make the leap, loose the mask…forever~ 

Knowledge binds the intellect
and I wither in its icy grasp~

The soul, so simple in its longing
to convey a message of mindless love.

We are lost in the “me”.~
Nothing beyond a sight so dim and weak,
fallible , our human condition~ 

And yet, the candle burns brightly,
bringing hope to a man
in the middle of nowhere~
