Like A Candle by Autumn Eliza

When you wanted to see me
In ‘totality’ in the candlelight,
Before going far away
By that cursed flight!…

I feel embalmed even now
By that light like an Egyptian queen,
And I am afraid to touch myself,
Lest I erase that glow from my skin.

Oh, how I am left here to burn
Like a candle till your return!
