Light The Candle


And then...
we draw back.
For it seems..as
they are judging others
so will they judge us.
Our thoughts, our feelings
our openness feels naked.
Like a snail out of its' shell.
And yet, by exposing ourselves
we expose them too.
Their harshness sharpens in the light
For it is dark, so dark......
so cold without light.
What can we feel, but pity.
What can we give but the chance
to light once more the candle
and hope and wait ....and love.
