the candle without its flame

a candle without a flame is just that.
no light can emit 
unless the wick is lit
likewise, a flame without a candle
doesn't last very long
but when brought together
the combination can bring light 
to the darkest of rooms

without you
i'm just another piece of string
covered in wax
cold and dark on its own
and where would you go
to alight your heat
and passion burning
bright as lightning
but so quick
as to liken you to a spark
without a ground to stand on
without the steady fuel 
of an infinite string
glistening with wax
