The secret to the ritual is that it works if you need it to. Death does not appear before poseurs, but if your desire is pure enough, if your need is great enough, you will catch His attention. It matters little if you don’t arrange the candles correctly, or mispronounce every other rune.
When the door to the other side opens, He will step through in all His pomp and majesty, and you will be allowed to bargain.
And as He flies off into the night, you will wait beside your lost love and decide the price was worth it.
