candle

The wax melts and we swim in
pools of lavender; the flame,
but a pinpoint serenades us in
warmth and we create shadows
on a blank canvas – limbs
undecipherable between us.


(Whose hand is being projected–
I’ll never know.)


Everything burns – I know this
to be true.


The wick is but a char, the
canvas – blank.


(Were we even here?)


A tendril of lavender wafts past
and I inhale, deep and greedy –
the proof extinguished; and I
am back to my questioning.


(Did we even exist?)
