Stillness - Poem by John Paul Ang

In the stillness of the night,
Amazed by the full moon's flight
The stars glitter brightly on the
Cold winds blows without a sound.

Trance d by the silence,
I am numb of any sense.
all that is left is a feeling of
Wa iting for everything to fall back to
I see your silhoutte,
On everything that my eyes set.
Shadows becomes your shape
Against the awaiting darkness gape.

In the darkness, you are my candlelight
Who gives me the only warmth in this
cold, dark night
Please dont ever flicker,
always feed your constant ember.

Though you burn my skin,
I feel a different warmth within.
It brings me joy through this pain
From this addictive torment i cant

You are my candlelight
In a cold moonless night
redeeming my sight
on this blinding flight.

You'r e my candlelight
I need you to always burn so bright
Thaw my heart that was left frozen
For you're the only i've chosen.

If you're not the one for me,
Then i will have to face reality
Let me burn in your flames,
Then throw my ashes for the sea to
