The unexpected ending of a relationship - a short poem.
|The cherished hope of loving people
Is being wed under church and steeple.
Being close presents no trouble,
Two who feel joy, inseparable.
But lack of familiar, true austerity
Presents a dubious opportunity –
The two might tangle, precipitate more,
And finally choose to end such war.
Stories of love and its shocking demise
Show conflict and pain, a new sunrise…
…Holds much more pleasure than staying together,
Amid this heat or stormy weather!
