Candle Has Two Ends – Written Tuesday 1st February 2011 (Aged 35)

Candle Has Two Ends

maybe i should slow down
going too fast
candle has two ends
am i on the last?
maybe i need to let go
and allow a little give
there is a limit –
to how much we should live
it feels like i am tired
but the fuse still flickers
and i am still wired
rationality bickers
and it never expires
maybe i should think
before i speak
fitting days in –
when i really need weeks
maybe i just need to slow down
