The seven sacred circles around the fire made them one.

A solemn vow that was never ever meant to be undone.

The children, the house, were her only life.

She was the epitome of the perfect wife.

Living in his shadow, is what she chose.

Up and up, the professional ladder he soon rose.

After too many long and lonely years.

Even the kids left home and then only he was hers.

But in one moment, her world did he wreck.

When he generously offered her a blank check.

This marriage has been just empty and dead.

Free me, for I love another, he cruelly said.

As he slept, she padlocked the bedroom door.

Damned was she, if she lost him to that young, lying whore.

Their beautiful mansion was their blazing funeral pyre.

Together forever, she kept her promise to the holy fire.
