the moth and the lamp--casar santos
ON MOVING ON

where does little one go
who formerly followed flow 
of warmth and light
which so excite 

when power shuts down?

does she simply hover
like abandoned lover
making no sound,
fall to the ground

or does she
at time when he
calls it the end

send heart-vibes
around earth's bend

is she who flew
with someone new
to experience blame

for hovering around
a hotter flame

Never...
Ever

  7. send heart-vibes
    around earth's bend

    I think we could all do that, if we tried, and it might make the world a better place...

  8. Just shows one should not play or fly near fire! I caught a heart-vibe throughout, nicely written.
