Soul Survival

I find I keep sinking in thought
caught in a rip of distant past lately
time disappears thinking what I said
at the end of a long term with a lady

it occurred to me now obvious truth
the dependency on an honest strive
for the soul to thrive in coupled life
and when neglected the weighty cost

I remember believing love impossible
if not requiring some gentle white lies
in hindsight one's giving dishonesty
is only impairment to soul survival
