a dark night in a never-ending past

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

gone, the inferno of torment
peace, resolution

not ours

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

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


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

i like:
' a cancer of doubt'

but other than that im still dumbfounded by what your writing means

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