The wives are lonely

the email message says

as neighbors create a modern garden fence,

Straying to the local grocery

for time to speak in private.

Begin a trek, with expectations.

“Is it just a signature?” she says.

A partnership with no definition

by partners left unsaid over time.

A void created with life being caught at the edge.

Unspoken promises not kept,

with the legal agreement remaining in place.

The wives are lonely,

the email message said.

Torn between now and coming

Wanting to learn to

Ignore what’s past.

Living in limbo

Imagining the future.

Grateful for the experience and

Harboring the hope

To soon be free.
