Romance Remembered and Forgotten

Romance is a wonderful thing,
a system of rituals by which man proves he loves a woman.
Rituals are wonderful things,
masks allowing any heart to dress in guilded face.

Or forget;
Darkness can be sweetness
Light can cause you pain
Twilight rising dawn colliding
Rides the edges of the flame

Within consumed
Without consuming
Burned to rise again
