Blow me

Blow me

I am a candle

I am the candle

I am your candle

They put me in this metall ring

They attached a silvery string

They stroked and set me on fire

My flame boils hard and thirsty now

My wick does not tire

My wax melts in heated drops

I am a candle

I stand strong and tall

I stand till my body flattens

I neither wither nor fall

I am the candle

My wick holds the flame

My wax vaporises feeds the mouth

My act knows fame

Blow me

Blow me from the south

Blow me from the north

Blow me from the east

Blow me from the west

Blow me before I diminish

Blow me before I'm gone

Blow on me and you'll see

I was in deed your candle

    ‘Love it! Reminds me of Elton John’s “Candle In The Wind.”

    This type of poem is not my cup of tea – too nonsensical, sorry.
