    Life And Death Of A Flame

    My life is like a flame, a flame that sits a top a pillar of wax, burning brightly and strongly, casting a dim but warm glow, on a large space, providing warmth and comfort, and bring security and light, to a room filled with dark, but the pillar of wax, slowly melts away, ever...
