Ironic brevity.

But such paradoxes are always more visible from the outside, which is indeed the poem's perspective.

The poet arrives at a destination. The novelist finds herself at the entrance to the maze.

either it's out of wedlock, or out of the love they had for their kids.

interesting musing.

Now I wonder... did they sacrifice their own happiness, or that of their children...

Those words yet so few, are so true, I thought it would be the best to stay together for the kids but enough is enough. I wanted them to see mom happy.

wow, excellent, i don't want to get too interpretative here, but the title implies that the couple were probably silently unhappy which in turn means kids can pick up much more subtleties than one would like to imagine.
