Idk what is this but definitely not a poem!
I suggest a slow read😊

A little light...

A harrowing storm threatens to wipe away this little light,

A harrowing storm threatens to wipe away this little light, a flickering candle,

A harrowing storm threatens to wipe away this little light, a flickering candle, fighting an unfair fight!

A pair of pale hands its only shield tonight.

A pair of pale hands its only shield tonight. Unlike the last storm,

A pair of pale hands its only shield tonight. Unlike the last storm, when paler & smaller fingers have laced through...

It flickers in remembrance,

It flickers in remembrance, as if to nod!

The rattling frames threaten to give up

The rattling frames threaten to give up yet not quite ready.

The rattling frames threaten to give up yet not quite ready. Last storm heard giggles juxtaposed with rattlings,

The rattling frames threaten to give up yet not quite ready. Last storm heard giggles juxtaposed with rattlings, culminating in a four poster shaking...

A sigh,

A sigh, deeply hollowed,

A sigh, deeply hollowed, escaped chapped lips,

A sigh, deeply hollowed, escaped chapped lips, lips that were not so lifeless last storm,

A sigh, deeply hollowed, escaped chapped lips, lips that were not so lifeless last storm, not so alone...

A sudden blast of wind has the light shivering,

A sudden blast of wind has the light shivering, the hands tighten around it,

A sudden blast of wind has the light shivering, the hands tighten around it, desperation leaking,

A sudden blast of wind has the light shivering, the hands tighten around it, desperation leaking, desperate to save it

A sudden blast of wind has the light shivering, the hands tighten around it, desperation leaking, desperate to save it or save himself?

Void,

Void, fathomless void,

Void, fathomless void, his fathomless void -

Void, fathomless void, his fathomless void - can a little candle fill it with light?

Void, fathomless void, his fathomless void - can a little candle fill it with light? Can it coalesce the thin paler band of void

Void, fathomless void, his fathomless void - can a little candle fill it with light? Can it coalesce the thin paler band of void coiling around his heart finger?

Fingers that went exploring last storm...

A soft sigh

A soft sigh & the light went out,

A soft sigh & the light went out, just like last storm...

Went out FOREVER,

Went out FOREVER, unlike last storm!

Thank you for reading 🤍🤍
