Our Becoming (s)

A scar that cannot be seen!
Quietly viewed while the yapping nurse takes a look before she cleans.
People often arrive unfairly!
It could either be husband or wife.

Marriage was previously yet jointly signed.
For both to not only share but build an extended life.
Yesterday was calm, steady!
Unleashed without cause for the next day.
Distance has dismantled so much!
Neither gain nor cease to retain a touch,
Same goals but no way of intention(s).
X-Rayed thoroughness may come at a cost.
Known as unchartered or lost!
Of our scrapings to avoid any type of doom.
How are we to continue this journey as bride & groom?
