As red wine penetrates
Fabric as white as snow
How it never completely fades
Like memories long ago
.
All it takes is an arrow
To strike my heart
All it takes is a farewell
To break it apart
.
We were meant to be
I know it without a doubt
You are the one, I believe
I could not live without
.
Years have gone by
Since the incident
Yet I cannot deny
My longing for your presence
.
It was a wondrous night
With a meal so divine
Accompanied by candles lit bright
And two glasses of red wine
.
In preparing the table
I did my very best
By the time you rang my doorbell
Everything was set
.
I welcomed you in
You accepted my invitation
I started with, "How's it been?"
And it soon unravelled into a full conversation
.
Everything was perfect
As a fairy tale text
There was nothing I'd correct
Except what happened next
.
As the number of drinks increased
So did lack of common sense
Our once upon a time compliments ceased
Our riots became a juvenile argument
.
About to leave from the fury
In a total fit
You rise from the table, in a hurry
Knocking your glass of wine, spilling it
.
Returning to your right state of mind
With disbleif in your eyes
To what you'd done to cloth so fine
You apologize
.
I forgave you easily
And then stated it's getting late
"We should let things be"
Ending our date
.
So you got up and left
Our fight would take time to mend
How'd I expect
To never see you again?
.
It was only until the day proceeding
That it came to my realization
Your heart had ceased beating
From a car crash devastation
.
I let out a deep sigh
Unable to speak
I let myself cry
As tears rolled down my cheeks
.
To this present time
The memory remains
Though all you left behind
Was a red wine stain.
