A Single Matchstick

on

One matchstick is all it takes to light up a pyre.

Yes it is a pyre that we are igniting today. But “Who died?” is the question on our lips. It is a pyre lighted to bid farewell to a love long dead. This pyre will burn all the memories we ever lived. A bunch of promises we made to each other will be tossed in this raging pile of fire. Our dreams of a life together will be swallowed in it today. And with them will burn a bond that has long since turned to ice.

One matchstick is all it takes to light up a pyre. Or one lie, to set a love on fire…
