room with a candle

A cold glow shines down on me
From the white fluorescent light
Unhelpful in the face
Of my darkest melancholy
The stillness of my weatherworn eyes
Drooping and unforgiving
Looking inward, searching
For a memory
For the past
For a room with a candle
A single flame of warmth

A sad miracle
As a flame is found
Amidst white light
A confused glare
Sinks through the recesses of my mind
As a beautiful past is lit up brightly
And all of its secrets are revealed.
