Watching the smoke curl into hazy clouds as the candles die I feel your presence yet I know you are not there. Forever close yet so far away as my soul leaves me in search of yours. Forever tainted by it's desire. Warmth spreading through me at the memories made, a gentle smile threatens to break my face, shattering every thought that maybe just this once that long felt presence would really be you. Here to hold me close and save the dying vessel known to me as my heart. Happiness found only in that moment. Saddened that it will never come to be, heartbroken by the endless possibilities.
