A candlelight

Every candle carries its unique name,
as well as its own, special flame.
The fire brings light and life.
But once it goes out, the candle dies.

One of the young, vigorously burning candles
had started losing its vital blaze.
The candle was lost in despair,
trying to find its way out of the dark maze.

The fate of the fire seemed to grow dim.
And what was the cause of it all?
Why was the candle giving into the darkness?
Who or what was behind its fall?

Dreams of the candle were impossible to reach.
Within the mortal realm, they couldn't be fulfilled.
What is life, if your goals shall never come true?
And thus, the candle's light could only burn blue.

That changed, when the candle had found,
A land where all desires are achieved.
Preaching of the Lustful God, it heard.
It followed the divine and promising word.

The candle, which was once clinging on to life,
was now burning with determination and hope.
A new fire was now burning down the rope.
The dark pink fire of lust took the place.

May the candle find peace and joy,
along the dangerous path of lust.
May it never lose hope and get to its dreams,
before the candle turns to dust.
