. memory .You glow in my heart
like the heat of uncounted candles
but when I move to warm my hands
my clumsiness overturns the light.
So I fall, headlong into the fire
burning, burning, burning alive
before the flames are snuffed out
and I am cast into darkness once more
(blissfully numb darkness)
I came up from the dark without you...
and everyday since has been in shadow
