The Wake Of Illusory Love iii

she put forward a parting proposal
that contained pledges of perpetual amity

which he accepted without rebuttal
though for a split second he’d considered a refusal
predicated on grounds of the ineffectual nature of such arrangements
which he was convinced were tantamount to declarations of momentary intentions
and not lasting obligations

but for the sake of preserving a peace
and release
it was best that they both agreed
to disengage
and not get married
