~Flickers~

I present this wonderfully emotional poem written by Brittany Lynn Gilbert.

~Flickers~

Swaying back and fourth so gracefully.
You are so small, yet you light up this darkened room.
You reflect in my eyes, setting my soul aflame.
How I wish I could touch you with no pain.
Just to feel your blaze against my fingertips,
To feel the burn of your passion.
I want to dance with you, dance in the smoldering ash you’ve left behind.
But I know better now,
For I have fallen for your grace once to many times.
Though beautiful, I must be keep my distance.
I’ll stand back here, watch you dance and flicker from afar.
This once darkened room, turned bright
Has now began to dim.
My eyes begin to darken.
You’ve run out of time, Little one.

Don’t you know?
