My love for you falls short of words,
But you will never understand.
I set myself on fire so that you look beautiful,
I would gladly be the dark background so that you could shine.
Maybe we will never have a love story like the greats,
Maybe we are too different for others to accept us,
But have you ever seen a diya look her splendid self without a wick?
This picture has been taken on my Ma’s phone, the only editing feature used is the crop. I bent down too close and almost burnt my finger while taking this picture.
Ma always lights two diyas outside our home every evening, I managed to capture one of them. 🙂
