I Left A Candle Burning

I left a candle burning

Maybe it will burn down to nothing

Or maybe it will light a curtain ablaze

Starting with the living room then creeping it’s way into our bed

Lighting the sheets on fire

Then our skin

Seep into our veins

Warming our blood until it bursts on the floor

Melting the walls, collapsing the roof

Breaking every object we thought was important

Forcing us to start anew
