Candle

Post by the quiet poet » Fri Aug 11, 2006 1:40 pm

I cannot light your candle,
nor keep the night at bay.
I cannot stay beside you,
nor halt the coming of the day.

Your eyes are blue as topaz,
but I long for brighter stone.
Your arms are full of wanting,
but they must want alone.

I hoist another standard now,
and know 'tis for the best.
I cannot light your candle,
nor labor while you rest.

Just when I thought there were no more tears inside of me, I read this.

Nicely done Quiet. Good to see someone getting back to basics with such excellent meter. It makes all the difference in the world to me anyway, when I can almost sing my way through a poem. This was the tune of the afternoon. Now I can't get it out of my head.
