The candle of my heart

I feel blank

The paper that a restless poet

Stares into

Trying to make a word

With no letters.


No thought to what

An action bears

To the rising of the next sun

Curtain Ė Iím a coward Ė close

And let me sleep an infinite sleep.


For I donít need to be anything

I donít need to be compared

Or stared at with complex continuity

End the start.


Because that river floated to that light

and that bird flew to the sky

Cause sun is what I wake up to

And itís enticing me

There seems some shapeless form

Glowing at its edges

And my body gets stronger

Against lifeís severing wave.


This road hits a junction

One way is destined trouble Ė a black theme

The other has a strange lingering light

But I donít know how to get to it

How to perceive it

How to understand and to make that light

The candle of my heart.
