When you can't read by Candlelight

The light slips from my fingers

slipping away from me

slinking off in the darkness

to hide beneath

the couch.

the cat

seeing that pounces

and then


but cannot catch the light

while I stand

staring at my fingers

wondering why the

holes suddenly appeared

losing light

there is nothing left.

  1. I guess we have all been these moments like these. Although you cannot hold the light you can still make good of it and in a way it could be good you cannot hold on because that releases a number of other possibilities to you.
