I Would Burn

To stand so still beside your bed
My light to give a calming glow
The fragrance of my love to shed
And this, my passion, ever show
If I, a candle, could express
My heart through flames and sweet perfume
Your eyes: my oxygen; my breath
Supply the spark to light this room

And I would burn to see your face
Each flicker dancing in your gaze
Until the last of me dissolved
The flame extinguished by the grave
Inscribed in fire, let me tell
With every length of wick I lose
I set this blaze within myself
To be the warmth inside of you

  1. This is a delightful poem of romanticism
    Vampire Weather, I have enjoyed reading
    this one and I will be calling back to try
    and catch up with all of your most lovely
    offerings… Be very well now my friend 🙂


  2. I keep coming back and rereading this over and over. I think it is a special thing to have someone as devoted to be your candle thank you again for sharing. My day is brighter because of it 🙂

  3. I think I felt that way once in my life…it was a highschool love…hell, I even went to Church just to sit by her side…imagine that:) Fire in this poem great representation of your passion.
