Candle Opera

Farewell sacred vessels of soft burning light
The glow from your flame has long gone out
The love of your tapered frame I will miss
Romance, igniting my olden soul
Ah, the misguided ache to love again
Divine one, please welcome this molten me
Snuff out this burning desire
Let the excitement and sorrows wane
While the candelabra holds the waxen trails of lost loves.

Based on Candleholders. Inspired by the Addio del Passato in La Traviata by Verdi.
