Start Afresh?

As with other poems I’ve posted in the past, I must offer a word of disclaimer on this one … lest readers jump to the incorrect conclusion that something is amiss in the “O” household. Written many years ago, this sonnet reflects (as with a couple of other sonnets I’ve posted — here, here) my grief and empathy for others who’ve shared with me their tales of marital distress and pain.
