Burning Desire


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. πŸ™‚
