Doubt began to eat away at his mind.
Nightly jealousy preyed upon his fear.
Evidence he could never hope to find.
The ashes of love could not shed a tear.

Shameful fractures scatter his willful pride.
It drove him to view her indiscretions.
His smile his cuckolded thoughts have belied.
Her lies have fed his darkest obsessions.

Deliberately he seduced her best friend.
That retaliation wounded his soul.
His well of bitterness only deepened.
Jagged shards of broken hearts can't heal whole.

Burning tears fell as he signed the decree.
Toasting life he raised a glass of chablis.

There is a lot of pain here. But as you say, pain is life, life is short, you will endure. I have faith that this is true.

A sad commentary on life and love, I'm afraid. This is a good one, DE.

I like this one! Is it me, or is there a touch of sarcasm here?
