a dark night in a never-ending past

should have been the best
a little red candle
insurance
burning bright
exorcising spirits

gone, the inferno of torment
peace, resolution

not ours

missing, the fiery passion
that bound us
together
replaced by regret
new ghosts

strife, where there was none
distrust, a cancer of doubt

festered

couldn't have been worse
a love destroyed
recriminations
regrets of a dark night
in a never-ending past

Again, it's about the end of a relationship, this time looked upon from a distance of time.
