Sadly, some married professed believers in Christ fail to grasp the enormous tragedy they participate in when they allow life’s sooner-or-later difficulties to tear asunder (break in two) their marriages. The two eternal souls that were one are what gets severed (divided), which means these torn asunder souls will eternally remain divided. Selah!

 

 

I’m in love with you but
You’re not with me.
How sour regurgitated
Rejection tastes—that
Bitter pill I swallow each
Time your pushback
Agonizingly reminds me
Unsympathetic, unavailable,
Habitually unfaithful love is
Spiritually powerless to
Consider sanitizing sullied
Soul severed by State laws
Sovereign never sanctions.

Promises broken—spoken
Fruitless assurances—just
Throwaway dime a dozen
Vows guaranteeing nothing.
They unkindly mired down
Shades of life’s inviting
Sounds of wedded bliss
The moment pledged love
Conceded to fears years of
Internal uprisings formed.
Upshot was crumpled couple’s
Fatality—union’s cryptic
Synchronization, two being one,
Ill-advisedly torn into two.

Solo soulmate’s lone pillow
Nightly bathed in waterlogged
Eyes drowning in shattered
Dreams’ vivid demoralizing
Manifestations of merciless acts
That yielded yanked asunder duo.
Tattered and scattered divorcée
Eternally outside marital borders—the
Modern exile without option to
Reinstate pledges and abolish
Dissolution’s disgrace, jilted love,
Lonely bed, and woebegone weeping.

Jesus answered, “Have you not read that from the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female’ and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’? So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.” ~ Matthew 19:4-6, Berean Study Bible
