Asunder 
Edward Iacona

As I walk the dog each night, I stare into the sky. 
The stars alone bear mute witness to my daily weary sigh 
I still ask the heavens of what went wrong to love that went
awry. 
I think of the things we could have done but she would not
even try. 

Writing rhymes about our problems is a great temptation. 
No matter our marital pitfalls there were vows of
dedication. 
Heartbreak and richer lawyers are the only education 
True soul mates who have broken bonds are a sad aberration.


Love and trust can be repaired, make it your marriage
vocation. 
Marriage and family live in love and should not seek
cessation. 
So, these words from I who may face life in relative
isolation 
'Never make a permanent fix to a temporary situation.'
