Candle lover

You inhabit me
in your rejection
as a burned out candle
stays in the room
I breathe you in
bound together
in separation.

Each month, a small group of us submit our paintings, sketches, etc. to a Flickr group called “Deadline Painting Group.” We paint around a different theme, and this month’s theme is the poem above. We’ll be posingt our paintings to the group on August 29th. It’s fun to see how different people interpret the subject and it’s also great to get positive support and feedback from various people. Please do join us!
