Candle-Flame Reflection

That night, in the darkness,
she reflected upon the candle-flame
swaying in the black void,
dancing across the solitude of her life,
and her contemplations hurled her back
into a memory so deep, ancient, and primal,
a memory older than the forging of her flesh,
and in that orb of light and fire she saw herself,
felt herself to her deepest marrow merged with him,
united, so deeply, so unfathomably
that she could not understand
how she could ever have come to be.
Deeper she delved into the contemplation,
reviving in her flesh that fire
that harnesses all the world’s flames,
and suddenly she felt his breath upon her neck…
