I Have Something

I have something
That rests inside me
It is mostly helpful

Mostly

It turns things off
When the power source
Starts to fade into oblivion

It’s very responsible
It’s always the last to leave

Sometimes it thinks to leave
A softly glowing night light behind
Sometimes complete darkness
Is the only viable answer

It means that sometimes
I exist with no light to sustain me
Sometimes it is the greatest blessing
Sometimes it is merely darkness

Candles
