Tonight I'll Light A Candle

by Kaylee   Mar 31, 2006

R_emember when you touched my cheek for the first time?

I could have sworn that the bottom of my hell had been closed.

O_r maybe it was the taste of your sweet kiss during the summer nights

That left me sinking into the white pillow thinking about your love.

B_utterflies! Sweet things emerging from the darkness of my soul.

How I wished to bottle the essence of their generous fluttering wings.

E_ventually, those drawn out summer days were replaced with winter snow.

And without the aid of streaming conversations, I lost faith of your loyality.

R_apture disappeared with the turning of the leaves; your words

As the snow began to pour heavily on the presence you were leaving behind.

T_onight, though, I light a candle for the times we were stricken with

The love that I was convinced we might always show through bad

or worse.

*For Robert*

    Wow, I really like this poem and I wasn't expecting it to end that way, but it was really powerful. You're a wonderful writer and you'll probably go far with those skills :) ...I enjoyed it through and through..I've written a poem like that before, I had it on the site with my last account but I haven't reposted it..maybe I will, I dunno.

    Anyways, great job on this poem..I absolutely loved it!
