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

a relationship

But this?

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.
