The burning candle…


the burning candle poem by saurabh chawla


Oblivious to you
It may seem
This heat in blue
Makes you gleam

The darkness fades
Slowly into the dawn
Rendering me helpless
Like a chess board’s pawn

I burn, I also cry
To show the way
Till I become dry
From night to day

Struggling the mayhem
I battle the storm
You fail to fathom
In cold, I keep you warm

You light two of them
When one wick can’t handle
Ultimately you will condemn
It’s tough for me, the burning candle…

PS: The color blue as mentioned refers here to the innermost part of the flame.

'Welcome to Melbourne' a voice echoed as the plane landed at the Melbourne airport. There was a hustle and bustle as the passengers started removing their luggage from the cabin compartment.

'Thanks!' she smiled and left for the room. The room was scented with a sweet aroma. The l

I wish this night stayed....

Cold breeze grazing my feet Maybe it's an act so folly But my heart skipped a beat Surrounded by sheer melancholy Your whispers echoing in my ears Its difficult to see with Eyes welling up with tears Heart aching in writhe Winds changed the direction again Waiting for this since quite long No more I can abstain Come let's dance to the song Beneath the open sky Beside you I laid Now don't say bye I wish this night stayed...
