melting point

please leave

me alone

i don’t wish to

mould a candle

wax smile,

dripping off into

an ugly shapeless

mass the longer

the fire burns,

and i don’t want

you to get hurt

by its scalding

remains.

extinguished

I do apologise

If such words

Are all I ignite

Don’t let it burn

Keep lightning

Within a candle

And blow it out

When it’s your turn.

wax & ink

ideas burn

and melt

like a midnight

candle

this burnout

is more

than my wick

can handle.
