The Glow of Candlelit EyesAlone in dark decay and dust
on old wallpaper floors
-spark, fizz, hiss-
a scant stick on scorched fingers

The yawning window welcomes a gust
levitating curtains and hair.
It shatters the moment,
murders the gleam
the swain recoils and
vanishes between the cracks.

Nothing but silence. For it is pointless, my dear. A thief came before you to steal my bleeding heart and all my fortifications, all my resistence, all my safeguards and precautions, were made in vain. But it is warm in here, so stay a while. Then I can bury you deep in this black earth and guard you with my fierce dragon and build a stronger wall. I would place thorny vines and another wooden door before it, all to protect you, my dear. Then you would be safe to lay warm within my soul i
