Flicker Flame #DVersePoets #Quadrille

And I wondered

if the sight of me wavering

excited you.

Like a candle flame dancing,

your palm held

just inside the heat.

Contemplating the risk

of snuffing me out altogether.

Extinguishing that light

with one blow

one fist closing tight.

Did I excite?

Not the exact word for tonight’s Quadrille prompt, but a form of it is there, and according to the rules that’s alright.

  1. There is such emotion in these words….in this situation. The idea of the palm snuffing out the candle…and a person, with palm and fist having the capacity to snuff out the light/life.

  2. Kind of a brave retort there at the end with that menacing fist balled up! You played out quite the scene in so few words, quite well.
