|Many moons ago, a young maiden fell in love
And exchanged vows with her Prince Charming.
Repeated promises of forever led to
Romantic getaways in exotic places,
Igniting a passion that swept her defenses
Away in a flood of emotion, and a
Gargantuan diamond ring sealed the deal.
Eternal bliss seemed to be so real.
Suspicious behavior allowed doubt to infiltrate, as
Yesterday’s vows were broken.
Masquerade replaced sincerity, until
Betrayal bred contempt
In this relationship founded on trust.
Open hostility thrust its ugly head into this fray.
Toxic words spoken in anger and wrapped
In a blanket of deceit soon became
Catalysts for change.
Destruction turns to renaissance
In court action, with charges brought against him
Validated by volumes of documents,
Opening the door to a new life,
Rearranging focus for a brighter future,
Concluding one phase, and beginning the next.
Eventually, her broken heart will heal.
