Brother of my lit nights
passion of my insight
     MY aroma therapy
it burns i know but pain is the way of the world
 he's my pillar of calmness and strength
but even he gets tired and has to be put to sleep
      he wakes me
hot wax all over
 Calm soothe
       he intrigues me
    so attractively
 he melts away again and again 
i feel his heat
 he flickers
he goes until his backbone breaks
sometimes the whole process is too much for me emotionally
      but at least my candle man never lies.
