Time and Fact

quite a different story she tells of course,
so different from his one might think they tell
tales completely unrelated.     he says
she was at fault,     and she says he failed her;
the truth likely doesn’t side with either.
does it matter which lost faith and which was
faithless,   or whose abandonment preceded
the other’s;     whose love grew cold first,   or whose
resentments grew too heavy before the
other’s   .  .  .   time and fact have them by a court
divorced,   by space and choice separated.
ah,   but you should have known them way back when
they were happily married;     a love for all
seasons running over with passions’ poetry.
