Six Candles

Six Candles


Even the hues in the sky and on the ground had differed
Not everything is always black and white
"A bed of roses" is so yesterday-
And also so disgusting that-
I don't even let the phrase slip from my lips.
It does seem like the day of complete loss of memory
Is in my vision... this is so gladdening to the heart-
A tonic to my spirit.
And, what once was so iffy and unconstant
is now converting to: appropriate and well chosen.
You have
an impeccable impression on my heart....
You are
a fresh kiss
and a refreshing love.
A romance that has quested my soul
And my hesitance has resigned
Today I turned to look past my back
And the grave was too far
And  I did uncover- in fair vision-
The flicker of six candles.
