Mistaken Sincerity

The taper candles were lit

Dinner was ready in steaming bowls

Soft music played in the background

Everything was perfect


Except he was not there

He hadn’t believed it was real

He thought the date was a joke

And so he never showed up


She was heartbroken then

The candles burned out

The food grew cold

And her dream died
