In the centre of this wooden floor
two tall white candles can be found
standing in their shallow saucers
silently waiting, not making a sound
these candles belonged to some lovers
who have been sadly separated
for what should have been happy times
were now mournful scenes that are hated
with these candles lit, small flames seen
in this bare room, that shone bright
when suddenly the lovers were split
these special candles lost their light.
the room had been filled with loud shouts
and a struggle that didn't succeed
then silence fell upon this bare place
after such a sad and awful deed
extinguishing those lonely candles
was astonishing to watch the smoke
forming the two lovers faces kissing
a lasting image on this floor of oak
I was inspired by a photo of two smoking candles
Within the smoke of each candle two faces were seen kissing.
