"Cup of Tea, Light a Candle" by Arianna Alexander

Every time I begin to feel sad again, 

I make a cup of tea. 

As if the warmth of it sliding down my throat 

Will travel to my heart,

And fix the damage that’s been done to it. 


Every time I begin to feel loneliness 

Coursing through my veins,

I light a candle. 

As if the smell that fills the air with comfort

Will travel to my heart,

And cause it to stop moving 

At a racing speed.
