Le divorce

She cited years of emotional abuse
he lay claims to her consummate affairs
years of marriage dissolved in minutes
their children now victims of despair

At one time love made distances unbearable
now the same couple simply cannot endure
even a second of each other's company
each encounter recriminations galore

To an outsider situation perhaps transparent
to the couple simply insurmountable
failing to see beyond their differences
the crimes quite unforgivable

The match was made in heaven
but god himself couldn't remediate
the couple too content to drift apart
can't live with love, but survive on hate

The End
