Picture to Burn - VictoriaPage

'Goddess, take away my longing for him.'

The flame of his candle rises as he holds the photograph in the fire. It is a picture of two men and a woman at a wedding. The woman holds no meaning now, and the fire seems to feel it as it reduces her dress to ash. His own smiling face and that of his best friend are more stubborn. Finally, the flame swallows the last bit of paper in his hand. The tears roll down his cheeks as he picks up another photograph.

'Goddess, take away my longing for him.'

The End
