like a moth to a flame
in the darkness
of a power cut

hovering around
the candle ring
carefully dodging,

but at times
almost dipping
into the yellow, clumsily

I keep coming back
even if I don't want to
I wish I could leave

I wish I could leave
but I'm here

because I forgive
so easily
every time

the heat
lightly burns
the edge of a wing

wait! the power's back
the flicker dies
in a whoosh

I'm free.


  1. Very simple, yet so deep and meaningful. Different people will have different interpretations.

  2. This is so beautifully crafted! Loved reading this.

  3. Does she stay because she forgives orbecause she forgets, gets seduced over and over again?

    to freedom!
