IS falling out of love a thing?
So it seems
Insensitivity is not a quality I admire.
I knew when we married she was obstinate
and not one for apologies to re-harmonise
Gobsmacked at her incredulity. She, unable to see
how insignificant her words made me feel
(again). She, after all I’d done
– at her command – and only just now finished after months
(and months – slow, I admit)
without thanks or even acknowledgement,
with no ambiguity
tells me I may as well not have bothered.
Is falling out of love a thing?
I hope not
but who can tell what the future brings
when one of two is lonely
and the other only plays to win.
