the end of light

flicker
        flicker
flicker
        flicker

tiny                tiny
        flame

so quick to burn
so quick to die

flicker
        flicker

tiny, tiny flame
your death
casting darkness
where I could once see

flicker
        flicker

wax spilling down,
time lost
watching you

flicker        flicker        flicker

your death
marks the hour,
the darkness
rushing in
to celebrate
your demise
