    dotsThe Candledots

    watch the candle burn
    dying to give light
    watch the candle burn
    dwindle through the night
    watch the hours go
    as it slowly ebbs away
    watch its fleeting glow
    waning before day
    does its memory fade
    with the dawning of the sun
    despite the price it paid
    and all that it has done
    is this the heroes mark
    the trace he leaves behind
    fighting through the dark
    as we lay there blind
    with the heroes death
    despite his claims to fame
    with his final breath
    so dies away his name

      This is well written, my friend, a very sad, almost haunting dirge, that had me conjuring up several meanings, all of which fit. Your description summed it up: "Nominal Immortality"
    Very, very good, and thought-provoking
    Be proud of it and
    Be Happy

      I really loved the candle metaphor a lot,because one could take to represent many things in life,bravo

    It was well crafted and the flow was awesome.

    At first I wasn't sure if I was going to like it or not,but after reading it, I was very glad I did.

    keep writing and I will keep reading

      I enjoyed this piece. It's nostaglic almost. I thought of the candle being symbolic to soldiers in the Iraq war right now. How heoric they are and like that, their light could be out. :( This brings hope to me and sadness all in one. Good job. I would love to see it re-wrote after you've been on here a month or so and try to include the things you'll learn from the site. It is good as is though. :)
