am i candle

am i flame

fuel for love

or ignited by it


as i yield, what burns

brighter, hotter as i flow

softer as i pool into

recesses forged by heat


and as i burn, what yields

softening to my flame

granting me permission

to consume it


you intensify my potential

as i express yours

at this point of light

that burns bright when we touch


oh love

we fuel

we spend

each other

until, exhausting form

with passion

the flame dies


and then,

where does the candle go

is it you who is dispersed

or i

to be reused

recycled and reformed

by the mystery that takes us in

and pours us out again


and am i that mystery

or is it you


or are we simply

that i am
