Three Candles Flicker

July 5, 2010 at 2:58 AM (Poetry)


Terrified

to shut my eyes

I clutch the white

in any way I can

apparitions

float around my head

taunting and turning

‘sleep love,

sleep’

I shiver

eyelids flutter

leaning against my soul

for comfort

wrapped in warmth

coldness seeps in my mind

‘let go, princess’
