The Candle


To the sight
that one sees
’tis the light
Eternal shine
The burning
The melting
’tis the light
Eternally divine
The flicker
The flame
’tis the light
The roar
The blaze
of the star
’tis the light
Eternally bright
Blinding thy self
The core
The center
of this light
That remains
Eternally empty

Note: About three years ago, I sat on the carpet in my mum’s room and penned this down in twenty minutes, while intermittently looking at her. Found this piece of paper while rummaging through my stuff a week ago.
