The Candle and The Moth

What an intriguing relationship they share: the candle and the moth

They’re strangers in arid daylight

They’re companions when darkness is all in the sight

Love is bewildering they say, love is splintering they say

It is enigmatic and obvious, it is obscure and pure

The submission is so sacred, driven by the appetite for love

Off goes the moth, guided by the warmth of love and flames of wrath

The candle casting a spell, flickering its flame

The nearer he goes, the more he glows

In a voluted path, Incineration taking over his mind
