Cruel

Cruel


Elegant heartache

Eyes blinkered by good times

Promises made now shaken

Future imperfect

Tense rules made to be broken

With a ring marital pledge

With a ring discarded

By diagnosis lost its shine

A text within a new context

Of singularity

Care free but cost too high

Snuffed out match of love

The most beautiful cruel

Great Poetry Jon, as JD says., elegant and poignant, and pain past hopefully exorcised.
