An Ending
Understanding lay dying at the feet of self knowledge;
Careless words pierced the heart of perception;

A bitter gall now takes the place of kindness;

No longer will esteem be tolerated;

In one fell swoop has all been erased,and nothing will return,or remain as before.

A light;tenuously maintained,has been snuffed out like a candle;with not a match to be found.

In this darkness let things lie;
remembering what was,
and is no more...
