Broken up

Broken up


I was told they had broken up

that he had left her, going off alone

It came as a surprise to us all

as we imagined them to be on the road to matrimony

They seemed the ideal couple, very much in love

a chance meeting had brought them together

I have tried to contact her but to no avail

she is the sweetest soul, fun loving and sincere

Love was what she searched for after a broken marriage

this twinning seemed to be the answer to her unhappiness

Together for three and a half years

no whisper or trace of an impending break

I met him only once at a family reunion

he appeared polite, tidy and I suppose attractive

An ideal match but not destined to last

She must be heart broken

as my heart goes out to her, my dearest cousin

I feel her pain acutely

Thank you for your comment on this poem. Sadly the relationship is now beyond reconciliation.

Hi Keith
This is sad when it happens. I'm finding more and more that you never truly know what someone is going through, even when appearances dictate a rosy garden.
Made me think.

Hi Keith! Obviously this hit you hard especially after another break up. Very well expressed sorrow for a person you care for.
