A candle

It wasn’t the greatest mystery of the Universe,

Nor the answers I sought; nor the power I wanted.

It rather hit me harshly, like a damned curse,

I haven’t had the time to bolt. I was daunted.


The flash of recognition burned my nerves,

I stumbled, gasped, and God! I strongly doubt it.

Five years have passed. My mind, it still preserves,

The frightening pleasure of the timid wit.


Oh, hell! I know stupidity of longing idly,

Without a realistic chance to even cross the path.

But I am stuck. It’s burning brightly,

A candle that should have died under my wrath.
