Breaking up

by Bucketlist

They barely said good morning
And now never said goodnight

Barely did they ever makeup
After having a verbal fight

Gone were the days of "Sorry"
Because each felt he was right

Countless hours of silencev
No 'olive branch' in sight

Brought little more than stress
It was a codependent plight

Too late came some insight
When one passed away

Fifty years had passed by
A lethal course of fight or flight

Illness plagued the other one
both lost to the struggle of 'might'

Don't let this happen to you
