Lost matches

In a blink, she's sunk into those crevices you hadn't seen

No dear, do not hold up your hands in despair, for we knew you're helpless in the abyss that you're stuck in.

It's dark but it'll be darker still if you were to strike that match.

Here do take this kerchief and wipe those tears as we wave goodbye to those lips that will remain a shadow of her clan.

You really shouldn't be running after her.

especially when the light from the match goes out, it will be darker still and the agony will be more. Maybe its better to stay in the dark, if you were to experience light for only an instant no?

or not.

some say an instant of light is just the thing you need in a world of darkness. If you look at it one way, the more you remain in the darkness without light, your eyes get used to the darkness (and so do you), while the briefest moment of light reminds you that there is indeed light.

OK. if that don't make sense, pliss to paardon
