My Little Flame

Tue, 02/09/2016 - 23:26 -- Oflores

Shimmering, Glimmering, small...

Powerful yet frail...

Darkness will try time and time again to swallow you whole,

To no avail...

Dear friend, you keep my feet planted on the Ground 

and send my mind flying to the Sky 

With despair clutching at my heart you keep me alive...

When the icy fingers of Fear and Loneliness trace my gasping spirit 

you burn inside of me...

keeping me Warm...

I hope and pray that you will never die...

Because they day you go out,

my shimmering Light,

that day I will perish...

That day I am undone...

Because my Flame, my Hope, my Love

You and I...

We are one and the same
