Flicker

candleinthewind

 

A lonely light lingers
in a room full of darkness.

Sparks ignite,
she shimmers and glows,
she dances, drips down to the floor.

A breeze engulfs her.
She fights off the urge to stop.
She is the entertainment of the night,
the star of the show.

Eyes follow
up
and
down
her every twirl

without her

the world trembles in fear.
One blow,
she dances no more.

a lonely light lingers
in a room
full
of
darkness
