Death of a relationship may be the result of one's
Indifference to the other's feelings and needs,
Vindictive words and actions, victimizing that stuns,
Or infidelity that devastates~~and a heart bleeds.
Realists, once starry-eyed with romantic idealism,
Concede that it's over! They can't bridge the schism
Ever before them. There's no room for optimism.
