Up close

Lit candles

For everything I want to say, everything I want to show, and everything I want to feel

They stand there


The flame does not wither, nor does it burn brighter

Pews sit empty

Dust mites spew confessions

This is something I do not want to share, not with anyone

I’m here, though


My words float above my head like a bubble

Waiting for someone to burst it

To spread it open, finding comfort in the words

Like it was their favorite blanket

I know what I want

Others know what I need

Tell me what you think
