Keeper Of The Candle Flame

by starstruck13

She stood by her window looking out into the night,
some people said she was insane,
but she knew down deep in her heart she was,
keeper of the candle flame.

In the darkness the demons would creep into the minds,
of those young and old,
stirring up hell within their thoughts.
And her job was to light a candle because she was the,
keeper of the candle flame.

Tears of confusion would trickle down her pale face,
in sadness reach out to hold a broken dream,
she never dared to share.
Her life a living nightmare,
caught between heaven and hell.

Tonight she would light the candle flame one last time,
and sacrifice her life to the deadly demons,
the untruth now spoke on her tongue.

Soon she will become one of them,
as she hissed and drew her breath in,
cherubs in white marble crypts,
started howling in the walls,
seemed fainter as if the entombed were listening in spite of their pain.
Wearing masks of hate.
Her white teeth flashed through the filthy veil of her snarled hair.

Keeper of the candle flame,
will never light the candle flame,
not ever again,
because now she is one of them.
