There’s A Light That Sometimes Goes Out”

Candlesticks burn through wicks,

Time marches on.

Intensity eventually succumbs,

Although, life lingers on.

Habitual motions,

Rising oceans,

Apathy quells the flame.

One day without looking,

One starts overlooking,

And things are never the same.

Wax and tallow,

And flickering shadows,

All victims of passion declined.

A room once lit,

Suddenly quit.

A plight that plagues humankind.
