This too shall pass.

A point on paper
A road map for life
Emotional wreckage
Strewn across the pavement
A crash of feelings

A faltering smile

A love once so strong


Like a flame of a candle

the strike of a match
nothing left but a burnt stick

and a melted waxy center
as the wax bleeds together
spilling on the painter's canvas
burning holes in the master's work
melting the paint

ruining the picture
of what was and will never be

The author's comments:
This is about (obviously) a love loss, about how it starts out as fierce and hot as the strike of a match, yet is over and gone just as fast.
