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.
