Thank you, but no thank you

How clever to suggest
 - with your customary lack of tact –
that I attend to celebrate
your forthcoming nuptials.

Thereby our captivity of tender
understanding and mutual feeling
is over

freeing us
to relegate to  memory
all that we’d shared

It never occurred
this was the way
to end it.
