Window to the Soul

By Amy Friauf

The flame of a candle is blown out
As lovelessness withers a rose away
And as the forgotten statue
Collects dust every passing day:
A man tells his lover
That he has found some other.
Don’t wait up for me,
We’ll never again be together.
The only comfort here is
To think of what could have been.
I sob in the still night,
Thinking of your lewd sin.
The flame has blown out;
The passion has gone and left,
Just as the lone statue still remains
At the reflecting window
Of timeless, eternal shame.
