    Holding and protecting
    the light that glows
    from within

    Mapping your location
    with casings
    that burn slowly
    I come with my
    lantern in hand

    Your wattage at
    the top of the
    lighthouse is
    extremely bright
    and the closer I
    get to you
    I become
    blinded
    blowing out
    the fire that
    directs me
    on the path
    along the
    shore's edge

    I search
    transluncency
    on all four sides
    to find the holdings
    that keep you grounded
    and well lit

    Through windowed
    walls I stare
    as the night air
    is let in
    and I wait patiently
    for a glimpse
    of you
    behind the
    beacon's spot
    of projected
    light...
