The flame flickers in the breeze from the open window
Raindrops spit against the glass.
Falling, rhythmic, keeping time
Wet spatters slide
rivulets filling the ocean of my heart.
The flame sputters, stutters, goes out.
Love and longing searching for a remedy.
Air so heavy you cannot breathe
Gasping, panting, breathless –
The steady beating of a shattered heart.
