The Violet Flame


The Violet Flame

My heart has grown heavy

With this loss

This unspeakable burden

But yet

I carry you with me

Like a violet flame

Which

After all this time

Still burns

As do I

Even without you

This is the light

That marks my path

It falls softly upon me

In the darkness

Like a silken veil

A gentle touch

Ghostly

That paints the night anew

In the familiar

Singular colours

Of you
