Moving Away …

After ten years of marriage they sat across each other with light years of miles between them. In the silence each tick of the clock echoed their ears. Sometimes when people love each other fiercely, just a bit of a strain can be the reason for the brittleness of their relation. 

Years ago if it was their love for children that brought them together, today it’s the loss of a child that tore them away. Initially they grieved together but when their grief took different routes they just couldn’t stay together anymore.
