The Candle

I tried to be a lover
To your darkness.
But then I got lost
In your eyes (your eyes).

Thought I could be a candle
If I tried
To lighten up your life,
But all I reflected was your blackness.

Maybe if you tried
I wouldn’t nag
If you would have zigged
I would have zagged.

Told you I wanted you,
Then you waved the white flag.
Took another drag
Before I left you to your nightmare.

Lit up not your world,
But your cigarette.
Told you things
I now regret.

Told you when we first met
I was a spark in the wind;
A lover to your darkness.
Then you blew me out
With your whiskey breath.

Maybe if you tried,
You wouldn’t slag.
You could have zigged,
I could have zagged.

Now we’re just dust to dust in air.
Both melted wax and ashen skin.
Maybe if you cared
We could have been.
(Your eyes, your eyes);
No lights left within.

Kyle Fisher (who often uses the alias Logan Rowley online and in his writing) has been enjoying writing since he was just 8 years old. His first formal publication was at the age of 13. He is now a spiritualist and openly queer author, perpetually searching for inspiration to create and learn more about the world around him. He is always drawn to the simplicity and uniqueness that life has to offer. He doesn’t identify with labels or socially constructed ideas about how the world should be. He believes that the world is your oyster, and that we all project our own destinies with the thoughts we choose to harbour about the universe. He is an idealistic, spiritualistic hippie who is just trying to find his place in this world, crafting each word to leave his mark, and promote love and equality among all people.
