The reasons for divorce were almost justifiable.
They filed for divorce on the grounds of
irreconcilable differences. A catchy legal phrase
most sufficient in these times. A catchy trend
meant to conceal the real reasons for divorce,
words marinated by two people who do not want
to make an effort to make their marriage work.
A series of flaws and sabotaged doubts,
marinated lies and inconsistencies.
Moralistic principles twisted, blame game
caressed. Played out feelings and bitter
recollections discouraging their windows
of opportunity and closing their doors of
connectivity. Somewhere between their
inception and conception, they lost their
sense of connectivity.
Instances of lost compassion, fleeting passion
accentuated by echoes and broken tracks.
They are like old mix tapes people don’t listen
to anymore. Constantly arguing, and fighting.
Less compromise and understanding. Broken
promises, stashed vows. A declaration of till death
do us part forgotten. Togetherness and companionship
discarded. Two people walking around with the ambiguity
of individuality. Clutching onto the phrase, irreconcilable
differences like straws. There is no room for reconciliation
now. The reasons for divorce are valid and justifiable.
