The black in her heart destroys his love,
he can’t look back.
Remembers the passion,
but it has burned out like a slowly dying star.
.
Her regret is distorted into hatred and reckoning.
He longs for the devotion once shared.
Her reprisal is swift as his shedding of her darkness is lingering,
like a terminal disease.
 
Ultimately, the pain sheds and the sorrow he feels for her escapes him.
He moves on to begin another life,
a life free of the jealousy.
