A Question of Ritual

she lights candles in hope
she may ignite a passion
a belief in form fulfilling
a desired denouement
yet her solitary act fails
to come to a conclusion
he listens to her confession
her questioned complaint
he wants to take her
in his hand offer his help
yet what succor can he give
what disavowal of his faith
together they play their prescribed part
separate each comes to their own heart
