Inspired by wick-bred flame
and the loss of mundane
means by which storms are tame.
My hand finds it sought vein
where rivers bleed into the sea
of written prose & poem
home to those deviant and rare
whose thoughts expose and compare
the variations of cost and fee
that accumulate in life’s roam.
As each wave becomes written
and the breeze becomes smitten
by the imagination of a writer that is I,
watch the stars twinkle away
into a night bluish grey
as the cords of my wick blacken and die.

------
Art is addicting, an addict am I,
truth is I, the truth am I, the truth a lie!

Written by candle light
Siah, though this one didn't grab me as some as your others have (and that's probably a reflection on me, not you), I did love the last line, "as the cords of my wick blacken and die." It's suggestive of so much more than it tells, there's a host of images behind that one line. Actually... now I come to think about it this one strikes me like the tightly layered leaves of a new bud, there's a lot in here, just need to read each line one petal at a time.

Now I remember why I think of you as the best poet I know. I love the last part, something abt the change in rhythm and rhyme schemes. props.
