Flame - Poem by terri kay

As if I am the sun
the near constant flame
to which your moth
and many moths
flock to it's radiance.

So you say to me
time and time again.

And yet with pretty words
and songs
and smiles
which stoke the flame.

Unless acted upon,
and soon,
I'll burst brightly
as a supernova.

When you eventually come around
you'll find me all ashes.
