strike the match against the memories
and gaze as the baby blaze ignites
illuminates the inky dark
mesmerising enchanting in its
flickering bewitching iridescence
the flame it
it shows me the future
it lights so bright the night before me
the bridge that will help me cross those
oh so troubled waters
sways
swaying
mesmerising, enchanting, bewitching
I throw the match on the bridge
and watch it burn
