Looking back in time,

trying vainly  to light

the tarnished lamps

of our connection,

finding only sad ashes

instead of hot passion,

walking among the debris

of our ruined feelings,

 just an ageing priestess

in a moth devoured temple,

a deserted, decaying  place,

where all the gods are gone.

Love the brevity. It makes the piece more intense. Fantastic imagery and metaphor.
