Save Her

candle

 

scarce any light in the bedroom
save the guttering candle in her hand

scarce any sound on the stone stairs
save the whispering folds of her robe

scarce any air to breathe to breathe to breathe

scarce moving towards the old oak door
save for one small step
and then another

the touch of his icy fingers
sweet murmur of white doves

save her
