Wake of a Marriage

The Wake of a Marriage

The separation of things-
Hearts treated inanimately.

The sadness in quiet places of the mind.
Unexplored territory of memories.

Antiqued love.

I promised to love you
To never give up
To respect you
To encourage your growth.

I honor these statements in all of their irony
And sanctify these vows
In the emancipation of our marriage.
