hope from inside

A flaming candle
in destructive winds
will sweat
to remain on,
will fight
for his last breath.

Breath in.
Pure oxygen
hollow and cold
no identity
no personality

Breath out.
Raging smoke
sweat flows out of the flames,
he keeps nagging
for his life
until his last breath

stops.

Just one pool
filled with wax
and pleasure.

Absolutely LOVE this! Especially the construction when it reads "Stops." Great work. Great concept. 5 out of 5.
