As Candles Burn

my candle burns at both ends
lighting the filaments of my life

echoing back a moment
echoing each action of love

burning fiercely all rests within

flashes of time gone wild
race before my mind

foretelling my dark dreams

A very strong response to the prompt! "Lighting filaments of my life" is a beautiful image.

Hauntingly beautiful. I love the line,"lighting the filaments of my life" and the way you echo echoing.
