weeping candles

she shivered when
you left the door open.

every whisper and
snicker, kept her awake.

she tossed and turned,
crossed her legs
and prayed.

she thought
of you, candles weeping
in the late, she prayed
for your wellbeing, your
health, she prayed
for strength; the candlelight,
burned her hair,
the scent carried
like ripe dates.

she cried
when the moon bled red,
a field of flowers before,
the petals dark and heavy,
kissed with dread….🌹🥀
