friday five

flames

sometimes it's just
a splinter or a hair
that throws me into
distractions. like the
votive candle burning
on the mantle, how it
punctuates my every
thought, with visions
of your face and the
taste of your lips on
mine. as lives molder
in just a moment.
i cannot get the
thought of you
out of my dreams,
but i can release you
from my day to day.

this really made me think about that.....

For me, you have created a sense of spinning inner confusion trying to slip into the softness of a candle glow.

Lovely write!

I feel like there's a relationship lost here and that it's easily forgotten during the day to day but, somehow it isn't settled yet in the dreams. Relationships are so complicated, aren't they? Very nice job. Have a nice day.

Ah, the modern world. Ripping us away from our inner thoughts.
