The candle flickered blazingly,

The candle flickered blazingly, then died,

The candle flickered blazingly, then died, filling the room with smoky quietness.

The day with its stubborn hours

The day with its stubborn hours has finally unplugged, and

The day with its stubborn hours has finally unplugged, and is laying stoic with me.

A mostly empty dinner plate

A mostly empty dinner plate begs to be rinsed but I look away,

A mostly empty dinner plate begs to be rinsed but I look away, my mind instead is too keen to reinhabit the day;

how a twitch on your lips

how a twitch on your lips put a wrinkle in our conversation,

how a twitch on your lips put a wrinkle in our conversation, how the surrounding air got humid

how a twitch on your lips put a wrinkle in our conversation, how the surrounding air got humid shrinking my cartilage,

how the chamomile tea turned bitter

how the chamomile tea turned bitter as I swallowed the last bits and left.

We’ll never talk, kiss or love again.

Some days do not wish to be heroes,

Some days do not wish to be heroes, they are resolved to be defeated,

Some days do not wish to be heroes, they are resolved to be defeated, becoming some worthless bookmarks in our stories.
