The Effervescent Candle

A night, when the moonlight was sombre and dim,

All my desires, my wishes seemed jaundiced and unfulfilled.

Glanced a candle lit in a quiet section,

Apprising me of something I heard avoiding emotional mayhem.

I aflamed myself to give you light,

Can’t you make some efforts to come out of your plight.

Burn your expectations, thaw the dependence,

That sanguine glow will brighten your existence.

Vehement passions, emotions, reactions,

Shift you to the land of self negligence.

Love yourself, be your own partner in thy vicinity,

Believe it, self love is not vanity, but you’ll value your identity.


What do you think?
