Tragic Innuendo

A tragic innuendo-
closed for renovations 
but sometimes, 
an ardent heart never re-opens 
becomes a sacrificial lamb 
when intimate relations
whispered conversations 
no longer emblazon 
the salt moon 
with sweet intent
and all that remains 
are fire brick cinders
yearning for a flame
