A candle

A candle

Lit up
in the dark
with spoiling fire

Little did I know
that fire is love
its burning my heart

Each time
I memorize ur face
smiling brightly

At me
& in terms
of looking at this candle

It keeps me bringing remorse
in my bedroom
oh I wasn’t trying to get over u

I won’t give u up
No I can’t
Cos of ur sweet love

Ur always fills my soul
With one word one touch
Only taking my every breath

Oh u lit up
In my dark
with ur golden fire

Running higher
as I’m catching
some smoke

Its ur shadow
dancing on air
from that candle

I shed a tear
out of my eyelids
washes the pride away

Now the golden fire
is escaping itself
I stopped crying

The candle burns down
on a glass plate
no more of ur shadow or ur fire

Yet u were gone……
