Some verse

not quite as sad
as the old man remembering
the man he lost his wife to
and thinking, before his eyes forever close,
that love is a fable
and the wife, who only thinks of him
on the anniversary
of their son's death,
smiles happily at the man she ran away with,
certain that love is not a fable

this isn't quite as sad as that.

~~

As the music played
he started to hear it again
as he had those first few years
but only for a moment
and soon he forgot even
to desire anything at all
