Candlelit (Romantic Me)

My first thought

was to have

a candlelit meal.

Breakfast sprang to mind.

I ought

to have

avoided a £3 meal deal,

but, they say, that Love is blind.

I bought

into the idea

invested my hard earned

into £6 of food –

and fork handles

(which I thought would make her smile).

She, fraught,

considered the fare,

and I soon learned

(what I construed)

something about candles

as she went to powder her rose –

she’s been gone

an awful long while
