Splitting Up

Question

Late in your days

Still time to renew

Not hard to swallow

Yet leaves you to stew

About what it means

In times of fighting

Recalling her tone

Your voice's inviting

But once wed now in haste

Or when taken to heart

For crying out loud

It rips you apart

Alzheimers medication

Edit spoiler

hey phaze - I have found that when I'm current with my meds I dont mess up the spoiler as often. Oh yeah, almost forgot, not it.

Love?

Regret?

Divorce?

schizophrenia

think beyond the "story" of the verse. also the format is a little different but not unusual here

Hey all - should have elaborated as to the structure of this one from the beginning. Each rhyme has an answer and those three are in the form A + B = C as barely hinted by the "wed" bit in this particular one.

Similar to these -

Sounds right to me, too. Knew you were on to the answer and hoped you'd come back. Glad you stuck with it. Good work fabpig.

Late in your days

Still time to renew - tea as in quiet afternoon break

Not hard to swallow

Yet leaves you to stew - tea as in the dried leaf you steep and drink

About what it means - about can mean ring

In times of fighting - in a boxing ring

Recalling her tone

Your answer inviting - ring as in telephone tone

But once wed now in haste - marry tea + ring = tearing. one definition of tearing is speedy

Or when taken to heart - tearing as in emotional

For crying out loud - or as in when crying

It rips you apart - tearing as in ripping or splitting
