Flames flicker in the heavy breeze from the open window,
as raindrops spit against the glass –
falling, rhythmic, keeping time.
Wet spatters slide.
Tears fall, like rivulets filling the ocean of my heart.
Flames sputter, stutter, go out.
Love and longing searching for a remedy.
Air so heavy you cannot breathe
gasping, panting, breathless –
The steady beating of a shattered heart.
